Call For Art Juried Virtual Exhibition

Theme: Rise

After a series of setbacks or a difficult season as artists, we often use our work to rise again. Art can be a form of healing, processing current events, or overcoming a personal struggle. What does it mean for you to rise again and again? What role does art play in your resiliency?

We are thrilled to invite you to participate in our juried virtual exhibition exploring this topic. We welcome all media, and the theme is open to the artist's interpretation.

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
