Miami is a HOTBED of exceptional emerging artists with exuberant talent, accomplished technique and ambitious resourcefulness.

HOTBED is an exhibition placing the projects of exceptionally motivated emerging and early career locally-based artists in front of international art market professionals and collectors during Miami's art fair week in December.

Launched in 2010 by documentary film and art event producers Wet Heat Project (Bill Bilowit & Grela Orihuela), the first five years of this high-visibility platform featured BFA seniors and alumni from the visual arts program of Miami's renown New World School of the Arts. Participating artists were challenged to produce bold installations, performances and video projects that crossed their disciplinary boundaries.

Our critical review panel advisors have included Rashaad Newsome, Dara Friedman, Mera Rubell, Maria José Arjona, Claire Breukel, Kristin Korolowicz, Gean Moreno, Shelter Serra, Jorge A. Garcia, Mara Sartore, Richard Haden, and Jen Stark.
