Started from the sculptor Czong Ho Kim’s studio in 1994, Czong Institute for Contemporary Art (CICA) became a unique cultural space founded and cultivated by him. Not only CICA fosters projects of experimental artists, we are open for everyone to learn about Contemporary Art and apply it to one’s life. We aim to provide a creative, yet comfortable space for artists and the community to nurture their creative and critical thinking with visual culture while they communicate with each other.

Fahrenheit 4.33 | Film now available

Fahrenheit 4.33
Project by Fred L’Epee
Jeffrey Beach (Beachfront Productions)
Helicon Films

 

 

Genre Experimental
Year 2016
Duration 12mn. 43s.

 

“The contemporary mythology as the representation of a catharsis. Thousand variations from human vacuum. Translated by the definition of our identities which became amorphous. Stasis. The alteration of our psyche. Vertigo. An existential schism. The Labyrinth built by Daedalus. Death is not an end in itself. Perhaps an inertia. Without reproduction. Neither transposition”.

Venice Experimental Cinema and Performance Art Festival

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.

International Video Art Exhibition (Wrocław, Poland)

 

“The Testament” (2013)
BorderBody – International Art Festival
From 10th to 30th of November 2013
Gallery MD_S (Galeria sztuki Współczesnej MD_S)
Wrocław (Poland)

 

The Testament (2013)

 

“BorderBody” is conceived as a diffused and nomadic exhibition in different places of the world. The festival is composed by two sections: “Mixing Cities”, which deals with modern urban changes and their influence on citizens, and “Mixing Identities” focused on the hybridization of social identities in contemporary time. Artworks’ selection is based on the main concept of fluidity, motion, changing networks and cities transformations. In contemporary society boundaries are getting more and more fleeting, and also the identity; what makes every person or place a recognizable entity, turns out fluid, multiple, making the cultural, religious, ethnic borders changeable too. This change, this mutation has allowed to cross the inside of the identities creating new possible crossings, new blends. There is no more limit between an identity and the other one but it is possible to walk, to cross a passage and to find oneself halfway through it, in a non-place, in a non-identity. People, backgrounds, societies, progress and all their inputs creates hybrid identities, modifying each other and being mixed in prospect to shape a better world.

 

Opening:
November 10th, 2013 at MD_S (Galeria sztuki Współczesnej MD_S)
From 7.00 PM, Bolesława Chobrego 24, Wrocław Nadodrze, Poland

borderbody| mixing cities and identities – poland 2013

 

BorderBody | Mixing Cities and Identities, festival of photography, video-art, computer graphics, architecture, installation and performing-art, will be held in Gdynia (Poland) at Gdynia InfoBox – Observatory of Changes, from the 4th to the 18th October 2013. Thirty-four artists, from different countries, have been selected to be part of this project.

BorderBody” festival is composed by two sections: “Mixing Cities”, which deals with modern urban changesand their influence on citizens, and “Mixing Identities” focused on the hybridization of social identities in contemporary time. The selection was based on the main concept of fluidity, motion, changing networks and cities transformations. In contemporary society boundaries are getting more and more fleeting, and also the identity; what makes every person or place a recognizable entity, turns out fluid, multiple, making the cultural, religious, ethnic borders changeable too. This change, this mutation has allowed to cross the inside of the identities creating new possible crossings, new blends. And it’s just this “contemporaneity” that makes our civilization conceived as subjected to a process of continuous evolution and cultural hybridization. There is no more limit between an identity and the other one but it is possible to walk, to cross a passage and to find oneself halfway through it, in a non-place, in a non-identity. 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. Changes are always positive and they represent our future.

Border cities & new identities | Romania 2013

 

Border cities and new identities | Romania 2013

 

Border Cities & New Identities | Romania 2013
Opening: July 26th, 2013
Prize: 1 International Exhibition organized by International ArtExpo


Border Cities & New Identities
 – International Art Festival of Architecture, Photography, Video Art, Computer Graphics, Painting and Performing Art, will be 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. Thirty-three artists, from different countries, have been selected to be part of this project.

The selection was 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.


Organizer: 
International ArtExpo
Curator: Luca Curci
Exhibition & screening place: The Water Plant “Uzina de Apa” – Center of Architecture, Urban Culture and Landscape, Suceava (Romania)
Dates: from the 26th July to 02nd August 2013, from 10.00 AM to 03.00 PM
Opening: July 26th, 2013 at The Water Plant “Uzina de Apa”, at 5.00 PM, Str. Apeductului nr.4, Suceava (Romania)


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.

Liquid borders | Bari 2013

liquid borders- bari 2013

 

“La Corte – Fotografia e ricerca” cultural organization and International ArtExpo are proud to announce the opening of Liquid Borders – International art festival of photography, video art and installation, held in Bari (Italy) in the prestigious and historical locations of Castello Svevo (Swabian Castle), Santa Teresa dei Maschi and Sala Murat, from the 3rd to the 31st of July.

The press conference will be on Friday the 28th of June 2013 at 11.30 AM, in the Sala Sveva of Castello Svevo (Swabian Castle).

The openings of the event will be on Wednesday the 3rd of July 2013 at Castello Svevo (Swabian Castle), at 06.00 PM; and on Thursday the 4th of July 2013 in Santa Teresa dei Maschi at 05.00 PM, and at Sala Murat at 06.00 PM.

The event will last until July 31st 2013.

The Festival is based on the main concept of the hybridization among art, culture, physical and social identities in contemporary cities, and the mixing between people and space. 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, with undefined ethic, social, sexual and religious borders. Forty-two artists, from all over the world, have been invited to present their artworks related to the theme, during the festival which will be hosted in the three venues of the city of Bari, until the end of July. The aim of the festival is to understand which are the borders still alive in contemporary metropolis, and which ones have become undefined and hybrid. To understand that, artists use material, pictures, sounds, videos and site-specific installations. Fausta Maria Bolettieri and Luca Curci, curators.
