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.
