WHY SELF is the first appointment of the festival SELF which will be organized in Venice at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi and Venice Art House, starting from the opening day of Venice Art Biennale (May 09, 2015), with a rich program of different events until November 2015.
For the first time in Venice we will give audience the possibility to have private meetings with artists, to meet them personally and share their art and experience. Each event will have a strong program of video art screenings and premiers, art residencies, talks, workshops, live dj set, live experimental dance and art performances.
After many years of research and exhibitions about the evolution of the idea of identity, we ask artists to share their personal tales through artworks; to create a link between the personal experience and the audience; to tell us which are the stories and reasons beneath their works.

WHY SELF – Adventures of social identities will be focused on the analysis of the identities in relationship with the social context. A person’s uniqueness is an evolving system which is constantly transformed by social, cultural, religious, and ethnic circumstances. This continuous mutation creates new blends, new crossing identities, which are the results of the society in which they live. Not only the external input, but all the people we meet, with their own uniqueness, contribute to the evolution of our individuality.
During WHY SELF exhibition, Ca’ Zanardi and Venice Art House will also host the first appointment of the experimental art show LIQUID ROOMS (May 9-10-11, 2015).
