HOTBED was launched in Miami in 2010 by documentary film and art event producers Wet Heat Project (Bill Bilowit and Grela Orihuela) as an annual platform for exceptional talent from Miami's nascent art community, personified by visual arts BFA students and alumni from the city's renown New World School of the Arts. Our HOTBED project name reflects the young, emerging Miami-based artists at work 365 days a year, maintaining a progressive energy in which visiting global art fairs thrive.

HOTBED advisors, mentors and pre-production reviewers have included Rashaad Newsome, Dara Friedman, Mera Rubell, Maria José Arjona, Claire Breukel, Kristin Korolowicz, Gean Moreno, Shelter Serra, Jorge A. Garcia, Mara Sartore, Richard Haden, and Jen Stark.
