Eligibility:

Primal Sight: Open Call for Contemporary B&W Photography

Online exhibition on In the In-Between: Journal of New and New Media Photography
Deadline: January 12, 2020

In the In-Between seeks contemporary B&W photography in all its forms for its next online exhibition. Primal Sight will be juried by NYC-based curator and writer, Efrem Zelony-Mindell.

Juror’s Statement:

“The world of color has no curiosity because it is literal. Regardless of differences, there is something universal in how humans try to make sense of the world. We become comfortable or unsure and Black-and-White imagery becomes something else. There is a feral looker sinking into the eyes of such frames. They are unimaginably photogenic. These images are not looked at; they brood at you.”

– Efrem Zelony-Mindell

Prizes Details: 

Selected entries will be included in the online exhibition Primal Sight, to be published on In the In-Between in March 2020. All entries will be considered for future iterations of this ongoing curatorial project.

Deadline: 
01/12/2020

Create! Magazine is pleased to announce an open call for the Art Miami International Print Issue. We are passionate about highlighting work by emerging artists and are excited to feature the next round of artists in this edition.

JUROR: Rebecca Hossack Gallery, London and New York 

The Director of three galleries in central London and New York, Rebecca Hossack was born in Melbourne in 1955. 

Following degrees in Law and in History of Art, Hossack studied at Christie's and at The Guggenheim in Venice. She set up her own gallery in Windmill Street, Fitzrovia, in March 1988. (She signed the lease only three days before the great stock-market crash on 'Black Monday').

Hossack's business, despte the economic climate, has not only survived, but thrived. In 2007 she moved the main London gallery to a three-storey building in 2a Conway Street, off Fitzroy Square, while keeping a second space at nearby 28 Charlotte Street.

From 1993-7, Hossack served as the Australian cultural attaché in London, initiating literary links between Australian and British writers and organising a series of exhibitions of Australian art in London. Her 'unworthy predecessor' Sir Les Patterson saluted her as 'one beaut sheila'. Hossack's portrait was included in Australians, an exhibition of photographs by Polly Borland at the National Portrait Gallery (with an accompanying book) celebrating 'the contributions of 55 famous Aussie "ex-pats".
