The International Biennale of Performance, Collaborative and Participatory Arts means to shift: to be movable, exchange, modify, transfer… the crux includes the shifting of minds, theories and practices. Grappling with the unconventional and new ways of working. Not being afraid of experimentation and pushing past any stagnant boundaries. Performance art is new within the canonical context of art history. Therefore, [SHIFT: ibpcpa] provide a platform for artists to interpret and present work, for an international biennale based on ‘junction-making’ and ‘networked’ performances which enable an exclusive focus on performance practices including collaborative and/or participatory elements between artists and other non-art disciplines.
Helping artists gain exposure during art fairs, We show artists’ works on our Art Display outside art fairs. We hope to include as many artists as possible to help them gain exposure before the eyes of art collectors, art experts and art lovers attending the art fairs. Our display is placed feet away from the entrance to art fairs. ** We don’t take commissions on any sales generated by the art display. No works need to be shipped as images and artists’ name and Instagram contact is displayed along with images of works. There is a submission fee of $55 and a participation fee if selected. We want to offer an opportunity to all artists who may not be available or cannot travel to show their work, thus this is open to artists from around the world. This is also a good option for artists who cannot access the high fees and commission fees as well as shipping expenses that are associated with art fairs and art exhibits.

The ZK/U ZK/U seeks to develop projects, co-produce knowledge and share values created through exchanges. ZK/U does not offer a fixed set of ideas and principles for its fellows. Rather, individual projects and needs shape what could be described as a continuous formation. Instead of letting the ‘final product’ constrain the possible routes that a practice might take, ZK/U focuses on the processes that come from, and feed into, the particular contexts of the fellows’ practice, whether they be locally-defined situations or international discourses. THE ORGANIZATION BEHIND ZK/U: KUNSTREPUBLIK The ZK/U concept and practice were initiated by the artist collective and non-profit organization KUNSTrePUBLIK e.V.. The association managed to become the owner of the former railway depot and holds a 40 year lease on the ground. KUNSTrePUBLIK‘s concepts and projects are equally focused on local involvement and global exchange. Coming from non-institutional backgrounds, the founders aspire to continue exploring ways of collaborating, researching and creating, that go beyond the lines of existing structures and preconceptions. As part of their artistic practice, KUNSTrePUBLIK considers the development of ZK/U a long-term process that will evolve through the contributions and critical feedback expressed by its participants, partners and a diverse audience. KUNSTrePUBLIK is […]

Coventry Biennial celebrates and promotes contemporary art, producing high quality exhibitions, activities and events in one of the UK’s most creative and industrious cities. This biennial festival is deeply connected to Coventry, its histories and wider context, but also retains an outward looking perspective, ensuring that the programme has wider appeal, significance and impact. Now working towards our second festival in 2019, we are also looking forward to contributing to Coventry taking the title of UK City of Culture in 2021 and we intend to play a significant part in attracting local, national and international audiences to experience the distinctive voices, rich culture and diversity inherent to Coventry. Our programme occupies unexpected sites in the city such as historic buildings, community centres, empty retail units, theatres and public spaces as well as more traditional gallery and museum spaces. This invites new audiences leading to distinctive interactions with both the works on display and the city. The biennial is artist-led, meaning that it was founded by, is owned by and is run by artists and aims to provide meaningful opportunities for practitioners at all stages of their careers, from recent graduates to established artists, with peer-to-peer development opportunities embedded into […]

ITSLIQUID GROUP is proud to announce the CALL FOR ARTISTS for SURFACES FESTIVAL, that will be presented in Venice from 26-27th May 2018 to 25th November 2018 at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space, Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi and other prestigious venues and historical buildings, during the same period of the BIENNALE ARCHITETTURA 2018 – 16th International Architecture Exhibition. SURFACES FESTIVAL consists of 3 main exhibitions focused on different themes: BODIES (May 26 – July 12, 2018), PLACES (July 27 – September 13, 2018), and SPACES (September 28 – November 25, 2018); an Experimental division dedicated to video-art and performing art and the Venice Architecture Academy. The festival analyzes the idea of human and urban places, how people live them and how they are modified in contemporary society. Every human being lives in a world in which surfaces shape their attitudes and behaviors, limiting freedom and creating a sense of alienation. The man reacts breaking the limits and finding a new way of life. We imagine a world of “liquid bodies and cities“, where differences create new possibilities, developing new structures, phisical, intellectual and spiritual. The festival aims to analyze the relationship between body and space in contemporary time. More info: https://www.itsliquid.com/call-surfaces-venice-may-nov-2018.html […]
