BORDERS ART FAIR, organized by ITSLIQUID Group in collaboration with ACIT Venice - Italian-German Cultural Association, will be held in Venice, at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello and in other prestigious venues between May and August 2023, during the same period of the 18th Venice Biennale of Architecture.

The festival focuses on the concept of “borders”, between the soul and the body, the human being and the urban space, 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 and the borders shape their attitudes and behaviours, limiting freedom and creating a sense of alienation. The human being reacts by 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.

Humankind coexists at a distance to stay closer: the new invisible borders are creating new ways of living everyday life, new human connections, and re-thinking common spaces and entire cities. We invite artists, architects and designers to be inspired by this new era, exploring the connection between desires, needs, and fears that brings humankind to change, transform and evolve our inner world.

BORDERS ART FAIR will represent a forum for the direct exchange of ideas and contacts between collectors, artists, photographers, designers and art professionals. The art fair features paintings, sculptures, photography, installations, video art, live performance and architectural projects.

Deadline for applications is April 21, 2023  (11.59 PM of your local time)
