The irresistible charm of a taboo
‚TABOO‘ is an open call for works which reflect on the many meanings of the term, whether it be a forbidden topic, an off-limits moral subject or a situation banned by society.
In this context, artists are in the most enviable position, being free in the widest sense, they are able to dissent and ask questions, and in their practice create new worlds which transgress the old. By exploring such issues as death, marriage, sexuality, money, racism, freedom, religion, gender, war, violence, politics, or behavioral traits such as guilt, shame, love, exploitation, forgiveness, they can rethink the theme subtly or explicitly.
5,000 € prizes for the best single work and projects, and an opportunity to exhibit in Poggiali & Forconi Gallery, Florence, one of Italy’s top art galleries.
Deadline to enter is 5 December.
Taboo is organized by Celeste Network.
