The Fearless Project is an art and cultural initiative bringing together artists, outsiders, thinkers, musicians, designers, writers, creatives: anyone who has ever had the urge to do something outside of their comfort zone. The project encourages and celebrates the bold, the creative, the daring - the fearless in every one of us.

The project encourages and celebrates the bold, the creative, the daring - the fearless in every one of us.

As an emerging force in the downtown fashion and art communities, Justin Violini curates atmospheres that explore our own individual boundaries.  Justin’s consistent interest in bridging the art and fashion communities are fused with his own references such as Mapplethorpe, Patti Smith, Warhol, Jenny Livingston’s ‘Paris Is Burning’.

“Andy Warhol said ‘Art is what you can get away with’.   Redefining the context of art is definitely a part of this process.  But really, pushing personal limits play a far larger role in the Fearless Project,” says Mr. Violini.

The inaugural exhibition is titled ‘Instant’ and like its name, it is here and gone in an instant: a one night only event and installation.  The exhibition of over 75 images finds inspiration in the relationship between voyeur and exhibitionist. Further scrutiny exposes the process – the challenge faced with curating such a large group of participants:  the fear of rejection.  Cleverly listed on each Polaroid is the means to justify an end.

The installation features a film component and a Polaroid display: both featuring male faces as the body is receiving various stimuli (self pleasure, oral sex, anal sex) capturing individual facial expressions at orgasm.
