    The extraordinary response by the artists to the theme of Taboo has led us to extend the deadline for admissions to 16 December 2015. This is an opportunity open to artists worldwide to collaborate with their projects with one of Italy's top art galleries, Poggiali & Forconi.

    Taboo 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.

    Enter your work or project in any medium on the theme by 16 December 2015.

    5,000 € cash prizes.

    Full details on the theme and how to enter:

    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.

    Entry fee: one work 20 €, a project (up to 10 works) 70 €.
