Can you smell what the Monster is cooking? Well, I can. And it smells like art. Preparations are underway for the first annual ART BURN 2009™, and it promises to be a fiery event. El Celso, the event’s curator/organizer and master griller has been pulling in art from all parts for what promises to be a smoking good time. C-Monster.net will be on-site as the official media sponsor of the ART BURN VIP lounge, while Hyperallergic is on board as the official critic and beer sponsor. The whole mess will go down at sunset on Dec. 3rd in Miami’s Wynwood Arts District.

It’s not too late to submit a piece if you’ve got something to immolate. Just shoot me an e-mail at c [@] c-monster [dot] net.

After the jump, find the MEDIA ALERT, with all the salient details.

Needed: Art to Burn.


Matches. (Photo by Bob.Fornal.)

Because we here at C-Mon are, like, total pyros, we are joining forces with the inimitable El Celso at this year’s Art Basel in Miami to stage the first annual ART BURN 2009. In a public happening that will undoubtedly be equal parts Wicker Man, Texas A&M and Richard Pryor on fire, we’re gonna be burning fine art. Your art, to be exact.

We are now accepting submissions of combustible works on wood or paper. Pieces must be of sentimental and/or monetary value to the artist. (We want to burn your art, not your mistakes.) All pieces will be briefly displayed prior to being immolated. Nothing will be sold. No fees are required to apply. (This is a low-rent operation, however, so we’re gonna ask that you ship your works to us.) The burning, naturally, will be filmed, photographed and social media’d to the max – assuring the death of your work plenty of virtual attention as the art industry gathers for its annual Miami Beach Swap Meet. Details on location and timing will be announced as they are confirmed.

To submit works for consideration, e-mail images and/or links to celso [at] elcelso [dot] com.

See you in Miami!
