Eligibility:

Art at a Time Like This is presenting an open call for artists from Miami and Florida for works to be displayed on mobile billboard trucks circulating throughout Miami during Art Basel Miami Beach.  Deadline: October 17, 2022

8x5 addresses the mass incarceration crisis and inequalities in the justice system and we hope artists will reflect these conditions.  Five artists will be selected through open call,  with an honorarium of $1000 per artist.  Artworks are encourage to include any of the following statistics:

Our mission aims to fight for change through numbers.  Perhaps the following statistics will inspire you:

  • The United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world

  • Between 1980 and 2022, the number of people incarcerated increased from roughly 500,000 to 2.3 million.

    • Prisons are overpopulated. Since 1970, our incarcerated population has increased by 700%.

  • While the United States represents about 4.2 percent of the world's population, it houses around 20 percent of the world's prisoners. 

  • Federal prosecutors have a 99.6% conviction rate

    • Only 2% of federal cases ever go to trial, while more than 90% of defendants take a plea bargain 

    • U.S. Attorneys filed 79,704 cases and only 320 cases resulted in acquittal in 2018,  according to the latest figures

  • As of October 2016, there have been 1900 exonerations of the wrongfully accused, 47% of the exonerated were Black.

  • Blacks are incarcerated at more than 5 times the rate of whites.

  • Spending on prisons and jails has increased at triple the rate of spending on Pre‐K‐12 public education in the last thirty years.
     

  • In 2021 in southern Florida, including Miami, only 3 of 701 US federal criminal cases were found not guilty. Of those cases,  only 10 went to trial with a jury.

Submit your images to 8x5@artatatimelikethis.com by October 17th. Don't delay.

You too can be a thought-leader and an inspiration for change.

Superfine Art Fair Miami Beach

Country:

Eligibility:

Superfine Art Fair Comes to 1111 Lincoln | Limited Artist Booths Available

Known for our uncommonly successful art fairs in iconic locations, Superfine Art Fair is the top avenue for artists to meet eager collectors and sell their work in the US. 

Ranked “Miami’s Favorite Art Fair” in 2017 by the Miami New Times, Superfine Art Fair makes a triumphant return to Miami Beach atop the iconic 1111 Lincoln Road building, designed by Herzog & De Meuron. The fair will feature:

25,000 square feet of exhibition space on the 7th floor of 1111 Lincoln with 360 degree views of Miami Beach

Advanced strategic partnerships including The Bass Museum of Art, Miami’s tech entrepreneur community, and municipal organizations

5,000 ready-to-buy visitors over 4 days (***25% of Superfine visitors report buying art at each fair!)

Recent Superfine fairs include New York’s 5th Avenue show in Midtown Manhattan, San Francisco at Fort Mason (across from the Golden Gate Bridge), and Washington DC at Union Market. Artists report meeting dozens of new collectors and each fair generates hundreds of thousands of dollars in collective in-fair art sales.

“I loved every second of my Superfine Art Fair experience...I met a lot of buyers, interested gallery owners and public art representatives as well as brilliant fellow artists, and the very juicy cherry on top was that I sold 13 pieces over the 4 days! 

On top of that I also sold 2 more pieces after the fair had finished thanks to being on the Superfine website.

It felt like I was part of a great family and I can’t wait for the next one!”

– Valerie Auersperg | Superfine SF
 

Why Not December?

Hosting Superfine Miami Beach in March affords our Superfine exhibitors:

A top notch, high-traffic venue in the middle of peak season

Access to an affluent, art-hungry audience with much less competition and “noise” than December/Art Basel week

Networking opportunities with institutions, municipalities, and decision makers

It also gives Superfine - and our exhibitors - the chance to be at the center of a new Superfine Art Week in Miami Beach, rather than on the periphery of a more spread-out, less focused event.

A New, Greener Art Fair

Superfine Miami Beach will host the same infrastructure our clients are used to - 10’ tall hardwood walls and museum quality exhibition lighting - in a new, environmentally-friendly setting:
 

Open air space surrounded by glass walls to mitigate wind

Commitment to reducing carbon output

Portion of proceeds donated to fighting climate change

Only 70 artists and collectives will be accepted into Superfine Miami Beach 2021. 

To increase your chances of acceptance, schedule a call now and submit your application for consideration ASAP.

09/March/2022
