SMART Cities & HYBRID Identities, an International Art Festival of Photography, Video Art, Computer Graphics, Architecture and Performing Art, will be held in the city of Venice, during the fabulous Carnival of Venice. The Scoletta di San Giovanni Battista e del SS. Sacramento in Bragora, the venue of the event, wll open its doors on Friday 25th of January, until Sunday 27th of January. Thirty-five artists, from different countries, have been selected to be part of this project.
The selections has been based on the main concept of hybridization between identities and urban environment to create a smart life. 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. Be smart. Be hybrid. Be better.
During the event will be presented the Solo Show of the performer Ji-Eun Lee, and the video “Chromatic Revelry” by Evann Siebens, winners of “ID / Identities” Istanbul 2012.
After the event, our organization will select the winning artist of 1 year of participation (6 events) in International art exhibitions organized by International ArtExpo, all over the world.
