HIDDEN ROOMS – IDENTITIES . CITIES . MEMORIES festival is focused on the revelation of the inner facets of our identities, on the disclosure of the hidden shapes of our being. The concept is divided into 3 sections:
HIDDEN IDENTITIES focused on the closed rooms we have inside. We usually wear temporary identities that reflect environment, societies, places. The exhibition aims to enlighten these rooms, to describe them, to create a new catalogue of human hidden identities.
HIDDEN CITIES is about the underground lifestyles that run on a parallel level of our ordinary life. Everyday behaviours are the actual reflection of cities we have created and that have developed a personal identity. This new city character becomes the new order that modifies our everyday life.
HIDDEN MEMORIES talks about the invisible common ground that unifies all humans. The event wants to represent through video art and performance this hidden line that connects all peoples, religions and cultures.
For the first time International ArtExpo will host its new division dedicated to the experimental dance, with live dance performances during the show, coordinated by Alexandra Foffano and Angelica Stecchi.
Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi 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; the Serenissima. 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 located off the main tourist drag but is still 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.
