BORDERS Art Fair, curated by Arch. Luca Curci, will be presented in Venice at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space, at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello and in other prestigious venues from October 15 to November 29, 2020.
The festival focuses on the concept of “borders”, between the soul and the body, the human being and the city, 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, the borders, shape their attitudes and behaviors, limiting the freedom and creating a sense of alienation. The human being reacts 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.BORDERS Art Fair consists of 3 main events: BODIES+CITIES SKIN (July 23 / August 21, 2020), FRAGMENTED IDENTITIES and FUTURE LANDSCAPES.
