There are NO FEES and NO COMMISSIONS taken, however there is one condition: all merchants must honor a ticket given to each paying patron for $5 off their purchase of $25 or more to help encourage sales. This ticket is one-time use per customer per single purchase at any single booth.

No fees, no commissions... you are like the ONLY gig I know of, in Detroit and abroad, with such great incentives for artists to submit their work and be a part of something really unique and fun! I wish I could be there for the show, but I've got company here in Cincy this weekend. Break a tibia!

+ 2013 FILM SCHEDULE LISTED FURTHER BELOW +

DAMNED proudly presents the third exhibition of powerful cinema called Purgatory III. Held on March 8th & 9th 2013 at the Detroit's Tangent Gallery, Purgatory will present various short films of deeply introspective, beautifully disturbing and darkly enlightening subject matters from filmmakers local and worldwide. This is not an industry-focused horror film festival, but a tributary showcase of the often redemptive films from the filmmaker’s personal damnations. (The 2013 filmmaker roster is listed further below)

Introduction
Each October end in Detroit comes an extraordinary assemblage of 100+ artists from across this world to display their most introspective creations at DAMNED – An Exhibition of Enlightened Darkness. From the infamous to the freshest of local and international talent, this prodigious congregation will allow us a glimpse within the diverse shadows of id and ego…of overall mind and encompassing soul guaranteed to intrigue, disturb, inspire or repulse. This is not Halloween-themed art but an immersion within the immeasurable realms of consciousness through an elegant ambiance of ethereal soundscapes and art-inspired cirque/butoh-inspired performances with the final closing evening, a formal mask mandatory masquerade ball.
