Call for Artists: Border Cities & New Identities | Romania 2013
Photography / Video Art / Architecture / Computer Graphics / Painting / Performing Art
Deadline: July 01, 2013
International ArtExpo is selecting all interesting architecture projects, photo works, video/short films, computer graphics works, paintings and performances to include in the next 2013 Exhibition:
Border Cities & New Identities - International Art Festival of Architecture, Photography, Video Art, Computer Graphics, Painting and Performing Art, held in Suceava (Romania), at The Water Plant “Uzina de Apa” - Center of Architecture, Urban Culture and Landscape, from the 26th July to 02nd August 2013.
The selection will be based on the main concept of hybridization between identities and urban environment, as the result of liquid identities and liquid contacts between people. People, backgrounds, societies, progress and all their inputs creates hybrid identities, modifying each other and being mixed in prospect to shape a better world. Mixing sustainable transport; modern (ICT) communication infrastructure; sustainable economic development; and wise management of natural resources, human, intellectual and social capital, is the key to reach a future better life quality.
The Center of Architecture, Urban Culture and Landscape “Uzina de Apa” is the result of a conversion of an old, abandoned Water Plant into a Cultural Center. The project results as a collaboration including municipal authorities, local community and an array of architects, engineers and students. Moreover, private contractors and companies dedicated to innovative techniques are involved to achieve an exemplary public-private partnership. Although originally conceived as a technological construction, the new “Water Plant” is now capable of hosting events ranging from conferences to concerts and exhibitions. By reclaiming its place in the city, this project attempts the true meaning of the word “sustainability” (sus = under and tenere = to hold) - to keep in existence, to maintain and prolong.
The event is open to architecture, photography, video art, computer graphics, painting, and performing art.
The deadline for applications is July 01, 2013.
