After the tremendous success of the first, a.topos Venice is pleased to present the second edition of THE CREATIVE ROOM, an original initiative created by the Curatorial Collective to promote emerging creatives, following its commitment to enhance their visibility by providing an exhibition space to selected artists in the venetian contemporary art scene. 

For more than a year, the majority of the world’s population was unable to attend any presencial exhibition in a physical space. This new reality was unsurprisingly accompanied by an intense discussion around some of the hottest topics of the period in the art scene - is the virtual realm better than real-world exhibitions? Will digital substitute experiencing a show live? Are we witnessing the establishment of a new normal? 

Many extensive debates, lost friendships, repetitive arguments and, most of all, many, many, many online exhibitions after, we can take a deep breath and admit that - besides its undeniable contribution to the democratization of Art - virtual is definitely better than nothing. And we can hopefully also foresee an art scene where both, digital and real, can, if not live happily ever after, at least find a way to peacefully (and mutually beneficial) cohabit. After so much time apart, it’s nice to explore the possibility of encounters. 

Therefore, for the second edition of this international open call we are inviting artists to address the thematic The Future of Art and the Art of the Future. What has changed in the creative process? How was the relationship with the audience impacted? Are we taking strides towards co-creation? Are we looking at the rise of new media hegemony in artistic practice? How are cultural agents transiting in the art system’s fractures? 

Once again, share your artwork with us and we will be glad to convert our gallery into an extension of your own CREATIVE ROOM.

Prizes Details: 

The Creative Room will consist of two collective exhibitions in Venice. In addition, we have 2 special prizes reserved for this second edition.

3 artists from our selection will be chosen by the super siblings co-founders of Portrait Eyewear Valentina and Gabriel Hernandez to integrate their platform ART Incubator and take part in their communication based on the promotion of emerging artists.

One month residency (October 2022) at Demoni Danzanti, idealised and managed by British born/Italian adopted visual artist Shaun McDowell.

Demoni Danzanti is an artistic residency dedicated to international artists located in the privileged Sabina region, only one hour from Rome, between Umbria, Lazio and Abruzzo. The residency offers the accommodation of a whole house with use of an office/study, kitchen, bathroom and studio spaces dedicated to painting, sculpture and clean spaces for drawing/fabric work.

Residents can use all the outdoor spaces of the property such as the roof terrace and the surrounding area of 4 hectares including an olive grove of 800+ trees.

The space is ideal for creating even large-format works and the serenity of the whole environment allows the requested absorption.

3 artists from our selection will be chosen by the super siblings co-founders of Portrait Eyewear Valentina and Gabriel Hernandez to integrate their platform ART Incubator and take part in their communication based on the promotion of emerging artists.

The eighth edition of CONTEMPORARY VENICE analyzes the relationship between body and space, and the hybridization between identities and cultural/physical/social/urban settings in contemporary time, through two main sections: MIXING IDENTITIES and FUTURE LANDSCAPES.

MIXING IDENTITIES analyzes the hidden parts of our identities, through an immersive experience inside the fascinating universe of the complex labyrinths of our consciousness. The human body is a changing system that connects us with other bodies and spaces to perceive the surrounding reality; a strong communication system with its own language and infinite ways of expression.

FUTURE LANDSCAPES are abstract, infinite and conceptual, associated with a sense of freedom and infinite extension. Primarily experienced with the mind, spaces redefining their limits and borders, transforming surfaces in open flow of pure ideas. This section focuses on the concept of the borders and the structures between body, mind and soul, the human identity and the city, the space and the ground.

Deadline for application is September 05, 2021 (11.59 PM of your local time)

CALL FOR ARTISTS
BORDERS 2021 | FUTURE LANDSCAPES
Venice International Art Fair
Extended deadline: August 08, 2021

ITSLIQUID Group, in collaboration with Venice Events and ACIT Venice – Italian-German Cultural Association, is pleased to announce the open call for FUTURE LANDSCAPES, third appointment of BORDERS – Venice International Art Fair, curated by Arch. Luca Curci, that will be held in Venice, at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space from August 30 to September 19, 2021, at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello from August 31 to September 19, 2021, and in other prestigious venues and historical buildings.

BORDERS ART FAIR is a contemporary art fair that presents collective and solo projects by leading and emerging international artists. The 2021 edition will represent a forum for direct exchange of ideas and contacts between collectors, artists, photographers, designers and art professionals. The art fair features paintings, sculptures, photography art, installations, video art and live performance.

BORDERS ART FAIR provides artists and exhibitors with the unique opportunity to present their works to an international audience of professionals as curators, gallerists, collectors, editors and publishers who seek to acquire, publish and encourage the best contemporary art talents.

The last edition of BORDERS ART FAIR took place in Venice in 2020, presenting a great selection of more than 500 art and architecture works realized by 250 artists and architects, coming from 36 countries. Never as this time the concept of the exhibition seems to be epochal: the humankind coexists at a distance to stay closer. The new invisible borders generated by the covid-19 are creating new ways of living everyday life, new human connections, re-thinking common spaces and entire cities. Could the new “borders” be the solution? We invite artists, architects and designers to be inspired by this new era, exploring the connection between desires, needs, fears that brings humankind to change, to transform and to evolve our inner world.

COVID-19 Protection Concept – The health and safety of our staff and visitors are of predominant importance to ITSLIQUID Group. This Protection Concept governs how we intend to operate after Italy’s lockdown has ended, the rules that will be applied inside the exhibition spaces and how these will be implemented in practice.

The festival focuses on the concept of “borders”, between the soul and the body, the human being and the city, the city and the ground. The festival analyzes the idea of human and urban borders, how people live them and how they are modified in contemporary society. Every human being lives in a world in which the limits, the borders, shape their attitudes and behaviors, limiting the freedom and creating a sense of alienation. The human being reacts breaking the limits and finding a new way of life. We imagine a world of “liquid cities”, where differences create new possibilities instead of being social barriers.

Human creativity always spreads all over the world. For thousands of years we have applied our imagination and inventiveness to shape our landscapes. Cities are leading to a new aesthetic change that aims to rebalance the combination of humans and nature, not only to restore natural systems and ecological integrity but also to deliver beautiful, engaging and remarkable landscape experiences. Today we face many challenges that require a big effort in mixing new frontiers to create new extraordinary places and spaces. We aim to generate future landscapes without mental and physical borders, in which the human being is completely free.

BORDERS ART FAIR consists of 3 main events: BODIES+CITIES SKIN (June / July), FRAGMENTED IDENTITIES (July / August) and FUTURE LANDSCAPES. We are now selecting artists for:

– FUTURE LANDSCAPES from August 30 to September 19, 2021 at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space and from August 31 to September 19, 2021 at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello
Extended deadline for applications is August 08, 2021 (11.59 PM of your local time)

The participation includes the following services
– exhibition space dedicated to the artist’s works
– assisting with customs formalities, international shipping and local transport
– assisting in finding accommodation for artist
– the design and the printing of invitation cards, posters
– the global and local press office, publicity, press, banners, totem, etc.

Artists interested in taking part in our shows, are free to be sponsored and supported by institutions, organizations, governments and their representers; the logos of their sponsors will be included in all the communication (digital and print) of the events. Artists are free to take part in one or more events.

The festival also aims to discover the interpretations of borders between built and unbuilt geographical contexts, the complex spatial mechanisms within contemporary cities and territories, to understand these underlying cultural philosophical, political and aesthetic value systems that influence the production of architectural form. The investigation concerns not just territories’ borders: the festival focuses on the design and the construction strategies applied to the contemporary “skin and bones” architecture, on the thin surface that divides and connects the inner places with the outer spaces, from the single buildings to the huge metropolis’ borderline.
