The first edition of the VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK “Hybrid Body – Poetic Body” took place in December 2012 at Palazzo Bembo. The live art exhibition project dedicated to contemporary performance art showcased in its first edition works of over 30 international performance artists from around the globe. Pioneers of this art discipline exhibited alongside established and emerging artists, reflecting influences and current tendencies in the field. The project consisted of a vibrant program of live performances, installations, photographic and video documentation, conferences, daily round tables talks and meetings with the participating artists, researchers and curators. The communication that can be triggered between artists and the audience is an essential element. The topics addressed during the week related to the need to look at social relations and the lives of individuals with greater care.
The VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK is a VestAndPage Live art exhibition project realized in collaboration with Studio Contemporaneo, Venice Open Gates, We Exhibit, Live Arts Cultures and Global Art Affairs Foundation.
