The SWEAT broadside collaboratio
The SWEAT broadside collaboration was initiated in the summer of 2009 by a group of South Florida book artists, novelists, poets and printmakers. During a series of planned events, artists and writers from Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties were invited to meet and share their work. The goal was to promote collaborations across generes by inviting participants to produce literary broadsheets. In this manner The SWEAT Portfolio was formed. The theme is an homage to Sweat Records (the shop in Little Haiti where the first meeting was held), a reference to South Florida's tropical climate, a noun and a verb, and was open to interpretation. Some writers worked with several artists, some artists with multiple writers. In the end, forty-six artists and forty-two writers participated in SWEAT. This portfolio was first exhibited at the Centre Gallery, Miami Dade College-Wolfson Campus, from November 1 through December 21, 2012.
