Venice, IL

International ArtExpo, in collaboration with Ca’ Zanardi, is selecting all interesting video art works, experimental films, installations, performance art and experimental dance works to include in the next 2014 exhibition:
Hidden Rooms – Identities . Cities . Memories, international festival of video art, experimental dance and performance. The exhibition, under the patronage of the city of Venice, will be held in Venice at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi, on November 11, 12 and 13, 2014. The event will be part of the festival “Venezia Misteriosa” organized by Ca’ Zanardi in collaboration with Regione Veneto.
HIDDEN ROOMS – IDENTITIES . CITIES . MEMORIES festival is focused on the revelation of the inner facets of our identities, on the disclosure of the hidden shapes of our being. The concept is divided into 3 sections:
HIDDEN IDENTITIES focused on the closed rooms we have inside. We usually wear temporary identities that reflect environment, societies, places. The exhibition aims to enlighten these rooms, to describe them, to create a new catalogue of human hidden identities.
HIDDEN CITIES is about the underground lifestyles that run on a parallel level of our ordinary life. Everyday behaviours are the actual reflection of cities we have created and that have developed a personal identity. This new city character becomes the new order that modifies our everyday life.
HIDDEN MEMORIES talks about the invisible common ground that unifies all humans. The event wants to represent through video art and performance this hidden line that connects all peoples, religions and cultures.
All artists are invited to reflect on the theme and present works related to the main concept or to one of the three sections.
For the first time International ArtExpo opens a new division dedicated to the Experimental Dance to include in its international exhibitions. Dancers, groups and schools are invited to submit their works and choreographies focused on the festival’s theme.
The event will be curated by Arch. Luca Curci (Founder of LUCA CURCI ARCHITECTS, International ArtExpo and It’s LIQUID Group). The festival’s program will include video art screenings, movies’ projections, live performances and meetings with artists involved.

Deadline for applications is October 31, 2014

Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi is a residential palace dating back to the 16th century which, over the centuries, has been added on to by various noble Venetian families and is one of the most evocative and beautiful palaces in the city of Venice. Sumptuous and possessing particular charm, Ca’ Zanardi is located in a most peaceful setting and has its own delightful private garden as well as a magnificent terrace full of sun and colour. Ca’ Zanardi is located close to the Ca’ D’Oro, the splendid 15th century gothic palace along the Grand Canal. It is easily reachable by foot, after a two minute walk from the Ca’ D’Oro water bus stop, or by boat using the palazzo’s private pier positioned along the fetching Santa Caterina canal. The refined elegance of the palazzo’s halls and common areas and the delicacy of its original 16th century furnishings create a fascinating setting.
