“Rough & Tumble” Art Exhibition Opening with FAT Village Art WalkSaturday, October 5, 7pm-10pm - The Projects in Fat Village Arts District, 523 NW 1st Avenue, Fort Lauderdale

Artists from South Florida and beyond will occupy an 8000 square foot warehouse and alternative exhibition space, creating new works that hang from the rafters, conform to, and are inspired by the unique site. Installation art, mixed media, Sculpture, Video art, and Interactive works are included. 29 artists were selected through a part juried, part invitational process. The artists are linked by their fresh approaches to the “Rough & Tumble” theme: “characterized by violent, random, disorderly action and struggles, unrestrained, marked by bursts of destructive force or intense activity,” and “an unorganized collection or mixture of various things, described as Raw, Textured, Volatile, and/or Arbitrary, Hybrid forms.” The exhibition is housed within “The Projects North,” in FAT Village ARTS District, the leading exhibition space for monthly art walks in Fort Lauderdale. There will be two public receptions, on Augut 31 & September 28, as part of the monthly (4th Saturday) art walk in FAT Village, which spans 4 square blocks and is populated with artist’s studios, galleries & other creative businesses. Free & Open to the Public
