Illicit Content features works by a group of artists who vividly demonstrate the blurred line between vandalism and street art. What might be considered illegal, like painting on property without permission, becomes an acceptable art form when it attracts admirers and draws commentary about the revitalization of an area or a shabby building. This is true in Wynwood where passionate artists express their creativity for all to see, often pushing the legal boundaries with their graffiti to the point that some artists have paid with their freedom and even their lives.

This exhibit proudly showcases works with seemingly illicit content demonstrating how perception, creative expression and legality collide.

Renowned Miami Artist Bénédicte Blanc-Fontenille opens a new solo show that’s “All About You” and benefits Act4Me, a Miami-Dade County non-profit organization that helps children with neurological disorders and developmental delay get access to the therapy they need. A 1985 graduate of L’Ecole des Beaux Arts, Bénédicte has lived and worked in Miami since 2001. Throughout her career, she has been inspired by one simple yet profound observation: That life is fragile, and yet, it is our knowledge of this that causes us to constantly move through cycles of building up and tearing down, rising and falling. Her work is all about movement, energy and capturing fleeting moments. Her work is all about life. Her work is all about you.
