Hybrid Identities, international experimental video and performance art festival. The exhibition, under the patronage of the city and province of Venice, will be held in Venice, in the prestigious Palazzo Flangini, from December 15th 2014 to January 12th 2015, and it will be part of the festival Contemporary Venice – It’s LIQUID International Art Show.

Hybrid Identities explores all the different facets of social, physical and cultural identities of our contemporary societies. Everyday we deal with a multitude of different identities and roles: we face the public life creating and adapting our social identities; our body and aesthetic tastes modify and are modified by our physical and sexual identities; our whole being evolves as well as contemporary cultures and modern cities do. Differences create new compounds and exchange possibilities.
All artists are invited to reflect on the theme and present works related to it. Deadline for applications is December 03, 2014.
The event will be curated by Arch. Luca Curci (Founder of LUCA CURCI ARCHITECTS, International ArtExpo and It’s LIQUID Group) and organized in partnership with VALORIZZAZIONI CULTURALI | ART-EVENTS.
Palazzo Flangini, located in the heart of Venice, nearby Santa Lucia railway station and overlooking Grand Canal, is a luxury, elegant and noble palace, a typical expression of the Venetian Baroque. Built since 1644 and projected by the famous architect Giuseppe Sardi, the palace is still finely decorated with sculptures, “stucchi”, frescos and paintings, with a monumental façade on Canal Grande. It is perfectly and entirely restored and fully equipped for hosting any type of events and exhibitions. In addition to an exclusive entrance directly from Campo San Geremia, it has a private water entrance and a dock alongside the facade. The total area of about 850 sq/mt is divided in ground floor (the typical Venetian Fondaco) and the noble first floor (Portego).
