Family Photographs

Flower City Arts Center
Rochester, New York

 

From the daguerreotype of the 1850’s to Kodak’s snapshot craze a hundred years later to the countless photos currently stored in your iCloud, the history of family photographs is almost as long and varied as the history of photography itself. Unlike any other medium before it, photography allows us to capture the exact likeness of our loved ones. And the act of taking photographs is both an affirmation and denial of death’s inevitability. The tradition of artists who use photography to explore their family histories, relationships, and identities is as complex and varied as how one defines a family. For this exhibition, I’m interested in seeing photo-based work by artists that explores the ideas of family, memory, intimacy, or domesticity through the use of contemporary and/or archival photography.

How do you capture summer?

L.A. Photo Curator Confronting Mortality


 

L.A. Photo Curator

Curator: Jane Szabo

Szabo says, “Several years ago, while sorting through my parents belongings before putting their home on the market, I read a line in a novel that really hit home. The character, who was dealing with similar issues and emotions as I, declared “the last thing your parents teach you is how to die.”

As I watch my elderly parents decline, with increasingly fragile health, and diminishing cognitive abilities, I am overwhelmed with emotion, and a touch of fear. Certainly, these emotions spring from the inevitable loss of my parents, but more striking is the sudden realization of what lies ahead for me and my husband as we age, with no children to supervise us through this transition.

This call for art, “Confronting Mortality” seeks work that looks at lives lived, the end, and the aftermath, in fresh new conceptual ways. Thinking about death is more than just funeral planning and and casket selection. Show me how you celebrate life, cherish memories, and how we hold on to our family history through your original photographs.“

TRANSFORMATIONS

The Pennsylvania Center for Photography
Doylestown, PA

 

The very successful TRANSFORMATIONS Exhibition is returning for its third year to the Pennsylvania Center for Photography in Doylestown, Pa..

This unique, juried exhibition pays tribute to the vision and skills of photographers who freely express their creativity by whatever means they choose. If you have been rejected from other shows or your work questioned because you use textures, composites, filters, or any of the other wonderful tools available to create your own vision, then you have found your home! Welcome to TRANSFORMATIONS!

The show will feature the PCP’s hallmark format of concurrently running both a traditional print exhibition as well as the very popular large screen digital exhibition for photographers who are too far away to deliver physical prints or who otherwise do not wish to print their images. This year we are also adding a separate digital exhibition for Phoneography – images taken and modified on a cell phone or tablet.

2,3,4: Dimensional Photographies Alternatives Juried Exhibition

Ohio University Art Gallery
Athens, Ohio

 

2,3,4: Dimensional Photographies calls for photographic work that considers the object-ness of the photographic image. Contemporary photography is embracing modes of production that move the print off the wall and into 3-D and 4-D realms, exemplified in part by a return to historical processes. Photography like this distinguishes itself from retinal, transmittable media by calling attention to its own materiality, its presence, its singularity, and its unique identity as both image and object. A photograph may exist in relation to other objects, to its own display apparatus, to the space in which it lives; it may or may not have a stable position in time. This exhibition looks to the contemporary practices of artists as photographers who are engaged with object-based production to engage in the ideas of reproduction implicit in the medium. We welcome submissions that offer a wide interpretation of photographic practice.

2,3,4: Dimensional Photographies will be a presentation of Alternatives, a biennial juried exhibition organized by Ohio University’s Photography + Integrated Media MFA program in the School of Art. Alternatives is open to all artists to apply.

9th Annual TAPPED

Manifest Creative Research Gallery
Cincinnati, Ohio

 

The relationship between artists and their current or former professors can be a powerful one. Even when this bond is left unstated, we carry our professors’ voices forward in time as we mature as artists and people. We realize that the learning they inspired (or insisted upon) is a chain-reaction process that develops across our lifetime.

Out of respect for the artist-teacher bond, and in honor of instructors working hard to help artists tap into a higher mind relative to art and life, we offer TAPPED every year, an annual exhibit that presents works of art by current or former professor/student pairs.

Lore/ noun:  A body of traditions and knowledge on a subject or held by a particular group, typically passed from person to person by word of mouth.
Fear is human nature. Everyone faces their own, and they can be vastly different. How do we visually analyze these things that bring us that spine tingling feeling of dread? We want to see your exploration of the visual lore of fear! Show us what you’re scared of, how you interpret your fears and transmit them to them into the world. Do you create tales of caution, or stories of woeful loss? Show us your dissection of the macabre, the strange, the scary.

N.Y. Photo Curator The Figure in the Landscape


 

Curator: Diana H. Bloomfield

Bloomfield says, “In photography, we mostly see landscape images depicted as expansive and isolated vistas, either exotic or mundane. This genre of landscape photography, typically devoid of people, often suggests both the presence and absence of life in these seemingly desolate areas (ie, old fences, broken down cars, boarded up gas stations, lonesome telephone lines).

Yet the human figure placed somewhere in the landscape stems from a long tradition, in painting and in photography. The inclusion of that figure alters the entire landscape and our relation to it. Full of creative possibilities, the figure in the landscape is often filled with mystery, sometimes totally incongruous in the landscape, or barely visible— meshing so well that the figure becomes one with his or her surroundings. I look forward to seeing your own visual narratives of the figure in a landscape of your choosing.”

light :   sunny, cloudless, ablaze, lucent, aglow, beaming, shiny, luminous, brilliant, radiant, bright ……

If you look into the coal black nothingness of your closet and you switch on the light and nothing happens; you may be dead.  I had an uncle that thought he was dead for seventeen years before he died.  He made his wife wear black as if in mourning. When he really died she wore an electric yellow and pink frock to the funeral.  His children wore strands of battery operated Christmas lights draped across their shoulders.  His youngest daughter lit the astroturf covering the hole on fire after everyone had left. It’s not that they didn’t love him.  It’s just that after seventeen years of darkness they loved the light a little better.”  From “Edison and Brautigan in Provence” by Franklin Cincinnatus.

As many philosophers testify, Plato in the first place, the shadow since ancient times has always been the object of symbolic interpretations and associations, becoming a reason for reflection on the human condition and its existence.

The present call invites photographers to propose shots in which the shadow is called to play a role that is not only metaphorical on the philosophical or conceptual level, but also as a compositional element of an image that, in contrast with the light, confers more pathos to a scene and / or a subject.

Washington State University’s Department of Fine Arts invites artists to submit works for consideration for a group exhibition exploring ideas about the body. We invite artists to submit works in any media including new media, photography, painting, video, performance, sculpture, installation, intermedia etc. We invite artists to interpret ideas about the body and its relationship to power and representation. The human body has always played a central role in art. Artistic representations of the body are found in nearly every culture in the world. While authority over the human body has long been determined by gender and class, in today’s highly globalized and pluralistic contemporary art world, artists view the body as a malleable site of meaning and power, not as an archetype but as a performative instrument, a vessel to be filled and surface upon which the artist or viewer may project her own fears, desires and dreams.

Root Division: Wander Woman

Root Division
San Francisco, CA

 

Curated by Rea Lynn de Guzman

Root Division invites immigrant women artists of color who are working in all media to submit work for Wander Woman.

The immigrant, immortal woman from the island of Themyscira, “Wonder Woman” embodies iconic, feminine strength. As an Amazonian-American fictional heroine, she blends into a foreign society to promote justice, peace, and truth.

Many immigrant women artists of color evoke Wonder Woman-esque qualities in their contemporary artistic practices by addressing issues of immigration, misrepresentation, stereotypes, cultural conflict and feelings of acceptance or intolerance with an honest voice to fight for equality. Whether autobiographical or not, Wander Woman exhibiting artists’ work will present complex characters and narratives highlighting transcendent experiences, often derived from their own personal perspectives.

Inspired by shared-yet-dissimilar psychological experiences of immigration and assimilation to the Bay Area, selected artists for Wander Woman will present nuanced, intricate perspectives; and narratives that have developed beyond the initial concept of identity in their art practice. Collectively, this exhibition explores complex identity politics such as diaspora, femininity, liminality, and power dynamics.

THE NATURAL NUDE

Southeast Center for Photography
Greenville, South Carolina

 

The fine art nude has been a celebrated subject of photography since the beginning and played an important role in establishing photography as a fine art medium. Early on, both in history and most photographers experience, the nude has been featured in a classical pose and setting, maturing to illustrating the human body as a sculptural abstraction, and with some pushing boundaries.

This year we are celebrating the natural nude- the figure in the environment, whether natural or man made. We are not looking for classic studio work but we are looking for photographers who can make a statement. Stop us in our tracks and make us see more in the image.

Our juror is Kim Weston.

Panopticon Gallery is pleased to open submissions for “First Look,” our annual juried portfolio showcase. Four to five portfolios will be selected for exhibition from January 4 to March 4, 2019.

Black and White

New York Center for Photographic Arts
New York, NY

 

As photographers we know about the dramatic change in photography that came about when color film was introduced.  For both portraits and scenics hand coloring was no longer necessary and over time color images joined black and white as fine art.

This call is NYC4PA’s homage to those images where all the emotion, texture and beauty are expressed in shades of Black and White. No matter if your original image was shot with tri x or with a digital SLR, if the end product is a terrific Black and White, it fits the call.  Sepia will be accepted.

BODIES IN MOVEMENT


 

Loosen Art

Group Exhibition in Rome, Italy. February 2019

The pictures that will take part in this exhibition will represent a continuum of that dialogue between the visual arts and the arts of movement, dance and performing arts, made manifest since their first developments and in which the art history has found an essential bond. From the plastic arts of Canova, to the pictorial ones of Matisse, Degas and Impressionists, to the performative experiences of the neo-avant-gardes documented through photographs and videos during the 60s / 70s, as no less are the testimonies expressed by the dance world starting from Martha Grahm and Merce Cunningham.
Even the gestural component in general finds in this call an important channel of expression, where the body language is subjected to new analyzes that investigate the behavior and lifestyles of man in the modern age.
