MIXED BORDERS & HYBRID IDENTITIES | Riccione 2013
Opening: April 26th, 2013
MIXED BORDERS & HYBRID IDENTITIES, an International Art Festival of Photography, Video Art, Video Mapping, Computer Graphics, Painting, Architecture, Installation, Sculpture and Performing Art, will be held in the city of Riccione (Italy) at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni, during the Nightshow, Annual Exhibition of the Night-related Industries and Technologies (www.nightshow-riccione.com), from April 26th to April 28th, 2013. Forty-three artists, from different countries, have been selected to be part of this project.
The selection has been based on the main concept of Hybridization and mixing of Identities and borders and it is divided into two sections: MIXED BORDERS and HYBRID IDENTITIES. Nowadays, urban environments, people, rules and limits are no more distinct realities, but they constantly modify and get mixed together, generating new connections and hybrid results. Ethic, social, sexual and religious borders get confused and we feel free to overcome and change all the limits, creating and showing a new type of identity: a crossbreed of characters inserts into a metropolis in which you can find everything you need and become everything you desire.
The exhibition concept is strictly connected to the Nightshow event, since the night is the perfect moment in which all these changes get revealed. During the night the borders vibrate and identities start to get confused.
