Call for entries
CANVAS | OUT OF BALANCE
THE LINE Gallery, London | October 22 – November 20, 2020
ITSLIQUID Group, in collaboration with Mercato Metropolitano and YMX Arts, is pleased to announce the open call for the exhibition OUT OF BALANCE, second appointment of CANVAS – London International Art Fair. Curated by Arch. Luca Curci, the exhibition will be presented in London at THE LINE Contemporary Art Space from October 22 to November 20, 2020.
The word “canvas” was used for the first time in Italy in the 14th century and it has become the most common support medium for oil painting, replacing wooden panels. During the centuries, the canvas’ meaning has changed, starting from paintings, throught the photographic and cinematographic film, exploring the human body, to the digital world. Canvas is the creatives’ common ground, on which they can express themselves. We invite all the artists to share their personal artistic research through any kind of media, from painting to sculptures and installation, from photography to videoart and live performance.
The concpet of OUT OF BALANCE deals with the fact that the world in which we live shapes our identity and personal evolution inevitably. Everyday we meet and 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. We invite artists to explore the concepts of Entropy, Disorders, Obsessions: entropy is conceptually defined as the measure of the level of disorder in a changing system. Starting from this fascinating concept, each person can be considered as a changing system, as the same as for a specific culture, city or country, until the whole universe. These continue changes find in the inevitability of evolution their measure of order.
CANVAS consists of 3 main events: THE SKIN PROJECT (September 03 / October 09, 2020), OUT OF BALANCE and MIXING IDENTITIES. We are now selecting artists for the following upcoming exhibition:
– OUT OF BALANCE from October 22, 2020 to November 20, 2020
