1310 Gallery Brings You: Naughty by Nature


 'Naughty by Nature' is in collaboration with Bedlem Lorenz Assembly at 1310 Gallery exhibit during Fort Lauderdale’s 2014 Art Fallout event. This exhibition features an array of South Floridian artists’ explorations, interpretations, and visual explanations of perhaps the single characteristic connecting one earthly being to another; body. Both physical and mental, become an essential component to modern and contemporary art in a connective, interactive setting. Upon individual discovery, open your realm of comfort to the interpretation of not only your own, but of those surrounding you while simultaneously uncovering the naked truth.


This exhibit will showcase ten emerging artists' work, displayed throughout 1310's three-story gallery.
