Liquid Identities | Venice (Italy) . September 28-29-30, 2012


Deadline: September 10, 2012

International ArtExpo is selecting all interesting video/short.films and photo works to include in the next 2012 Exhibition:

Liquid Identities – International Videoart Festival and Photo Exhibition at Scoletta di San Giovanni Battista e del SS. Sacramento in Bragora, Venice (September 28-29-30, 2012)

The deadline for applications is September 10, 2012.

The selections will be based on the main concept of “Liquid Identities” based on fluidity, motion, changing networks and cities transformations. In contemporary society boundaries are getting more and more fleeting, and also the identity; what makes every person or place a recognizable entity, turns out fluid, multiple, making the cultural, religious, ethnic borders changeable too. This change, this mutation has allowed to cross the inside of the identities creating new possible crossings, new blends. And it’s just this “contemporaneity” that makes our civilization conceived as subjected to a process of continuous evolution and cultural hybridization. There is no more limit between an identity and the other one but it is possible to walk, to cross a passage and to find oneself halfway through it, in a non-place, in a non-identity. This project is about temporary roles in changing rules, thinking about liquid borders in new evolving worlds.

The number of works with which you can participate is unlimited.

All video works must be on DVD (PAL or NTSC), no matter what the original source medium. The maximum length of videos should be 10 minutes. All photo works on every kind of support are accepted. The maximum dimensions allowed per each image are 100 cm per side. We need also copy of the CV/biography, videography and some still images (only for video artists) and some samples of photo works (only for artists) through one of the following ways:

- by e-mail

The forwarding of all documents and artworks has to be carried out through online transfer services (as for example: wetransfer.com, filecentral.se, yousendit.com or other similar) at lucacurci@lucacurci.com

- by mail to:

International ArtExpo
Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, 33
70122 Bari, Italy

Artistic journey of discovery into the past, present and future of the Port of Rotterdam.

Organized by SKOR (Foundation Art and Public Space) in cooperation with Port of Rotterdam Authority and Latitudes, Barcelona

Portscapes is a series of newly commissioned art projects focusing on the construction of Maasvlakte 2, a massive land supplementation project in the North Sea, encompassing 2000 hectares. Ten (inter)national artists (and duo's) were invited to reflect on the port, its function and its expansion throughout 2009. Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen is exhibiting ten art projects that emerged from this process, in an eye-catching exhibition.

Final results
The launch of Portscapes took place twelve months ago, early one Sunday morning on the virgin beaches of the Maasvlakte. On that occasion, with an excavator and camera, Jan Dibbets created a new version of his now classic work of art 12 Hours Tide Object With Correction of Perspective (1969). The other invited artists then also sought inspiration in the scale and social, economic and ecological impact of the port area. Now on display at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen is work by Lara Almarcegui (Spain/Netherlands), Bik Van der Pol (Netherlands), Jan Dibbets (Netherlands), Marjolijn Dijkman (Netherlands), Rob Hamelijnck and Nienke Terpsma (Netherlands), Ilana Halperin (US/Scotland), Christina Hemauer and Roman Keller and (Switzerland), Paulien Oltheten (Netherlands), Jorge Satorre (Mexico) and Hans Schabus (Austria).

Portscapes was developed on the initiative of the Port of Rotterdam Authority by SKOR (Foundation Art and Public Space) and was curated by Latitudes, Barcelona.

New world
It is unique for artists to be involved in a project like Maasvlakte 2, at such an early stage. The various works of art visualise the fascinating and massively proportioned world of the port of Rotterdam, and bring to life a new piece of land. In the exhibition, photographic and video works, slideshows, sound recordings, collages and objects will all be on display. One of the objects in the exhibition is the small wooden boat on board of which Hans Schabus sailed into the port for his photograph Europahaven, Rotterdam, 17 juni 2009. The radio interviews with biologists, artists and writers broadcast over a three-week period from a container by Nienke Terpsma and Rob Hamelijnck can be listened to, and the project in which Lara Almarcegui charted out the wasteland sites around the city and the Maasvlakte, is presented in a series of slides and a freely-distributed newspaper.

As well as the artists, the designers of the exhibition itself, Overtreders W, were inspired by the port. They have created semi-transparent display structures for the museum's Richard Serra Hall, using industrial materials based on the format of cargo containers.

Portscapes is accompanied by a joint publication by SKOR and the Port of Rotterdam Authority. This boxed publication designed by Ben Laloua/Didier Pascal, contains a 'cahier' with essays alongside diverse contributions by the artists. The publication is available at the museum shop at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen or can be ordered via SKOR.

Mail to:
info@skor.nl or call +31(0)20-672 25 25. A special edition is also available including a DVD of the film by Jan Dibbets.
