Artists Torch Miami Art Show

12.04.09 Will Sherman

Dozens of artworks went up in flames last night at Art Burn 2009, an incendiary exhibition outside Miami’s jumble of fairs. Carrying on the tradition of anti-Renaissance priests and desert ravers, burn master and artist El Celso systematically torched creative pieces of kindling that included workwork by Michael De Feo, Darkcloud and fire tagger Ellis G. As promised, the inflammatory performance was well documented by co-host of combustion C-Monster.
