ABOUT:

LIQUID ROOMS – THE LABYRINTH, a unique exhibition path hosted in Venice in two different venues: Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi and VENICE ART HOUSE Gallery, from February 04 to March 06, 2016. The event will be a mix between contemporary art show and art residency.

LIQUID ROOMS – THE LABYRINTH is part of “Behind the Mask“, official event of Venice Carnival 2016 (February 04-21, 2016). During last Venice Carnival the city of Venice hosted more than 1.000.000 visitors, 300 artists involved, more than 300 accredited journalists from all over the world.

LIQUID ROOMS – THE LABYRINTH is an invitation for artists to explore their intimate self and to analyze the relationship between man and space (private and/or public). The exhibition has a dual-layered format which expresses the urban nature of the city of Venice (with all its labyrinthine streets) and the inner labyrinths of our identities. Opening the doors of their rooms to visitors and crossing the exhibition path through the different venues, artists and audience will disclose and explore the intimate part of their art and beings.

The festival’s program will include video art screenings, movies’ projections, live performances and meetings with artists involved.

Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi (Cannaregio 4132, Venice) is a residential palace dating back to the 16th century which, over the centuries, has been added on to by various noble Venetian families and is one of the most evocative and beautiful palaces in the city of Venice. Sumptuous and possessing particular charm, Ca’ Zanardi is located in a most peaceful setting and has its own delightful private garden as well as a magnificent terrace full of sun and colour. Ca’ Zanardi is located close to the Ca’ D’Oro, the splendid 15th century gothic palace along the Grand Canal.  It is easily reachable by foot, after a two minute walk from the Ca’ D’Oro water bus stop, or by boat using the palazzo’s private pier positioned along the fetching Santa Caterina canal. The refined elegance of the palazzo’s halls and common areas and the delicacy of its original 16th century furnishings create a fascinating setting.

Venice Art House gallery is an art gallery located in Venice (Cannaregio 1863C), with a dimension of 250 sqm and two water entrances. Starting from the opening of the space, It’s LIQUID Group, under the direction of Luca Curci, in collaboration with the director of the gallery, Andrea Chinellato, has organized several exhibitions monthly.
