Contemporis ets is a non-profit cultural association based in Venice. Contemporis was founded in 2021 by a group of people who share an interest in the multiple expressions of contemporary culture and their interaction with the peculiar architectural and social context of the Venetian lagoon. With the aim of enhancing, disseminating and developing multidisciplinary artistic projects, which involve in particular the visual and performing arts, architecture and design, Contemporis works to enrich the city’s cultural offer through the organisation of exhibitions, events, meetings, presentations and festivals. To pursue these objectives, Contemporis is proposed as a permeable and erratic platform, anchored to the lagoon but with an eye towards the world.
ICF partnered with Venice Art Factory and Contemporis ets to present out Diaspora Pavilion 2: Venice performance and installation commission Zot Konn – Yeman by Shiraz Bayjoo in collaboration with Siyabonga Mthembu and Nicolas Faubert (2022).
