Call to Artists Florida

¡SIN! is a national juried exhibition of original work inspired by a traditional concept of human transgressions. Lust, envy, gluttony, sloth, greed, wrath and pride have had an enormous impact on the moral compass of the modern world. With many different interpretations and understandings, each individual sin has been explored and exposed numerous times.

The Bakehouse Art Complex, Miami FL, is announcing a Call to Artists for ¡SIN! to be on view during the world renowned art fair Art Basel Miami 2010. In its 2,600 square foot gallery, the artists, chosen by a reputable panel of curators, will display their works that are directly related to one of the deadly sins. Each of the seven sins is explored, from their origins and nature, their opposing virtue, and their corresponding punishment through a variety of media and styles from across the country.
Applicants will have the opportunity to present their work to a highly distinguished panel of jurors consisting of Museum and respected Art Professionals from Miami. Each juror has chosen a specific sin, which they will individually curate.
