taboo-photography-contest-2015Taboo is an open call for artwork which sparks thoughtful investigation on taboos. Works submitted can take into account prevailing taboos, wherever and however they are experienced, geographically or culturally, or give a sense of how and why transitions to new forms of consideration and acceptance are given with taboos. 

Finalist works will be chosen by the directors of Galleria Poggiali & Forconi, who will be hosting the final exhibition in their two spaces in Florence, Italy, 15-30 March 2016. This is an opportunity to show your artwork and work alongside one of Italy’s top art galleries. Prize winners will be chosen by the finalist artists themselves in a secret vote which will be held on the exhibition’s opening night in March 2016.
