The Freedom of Abstraction
May 3, 2019 – June 1, 2019

The rise of abstraction meant freedom from the strictures and constraints of naturalism and representation. For some, it means stripping away the visual irrelevancies of nature in order to explore different subjects, an exploration of the artist’s own imagination, or finding the essential qualities a form observed in the real world. The freedom of abstraction rests on a paradox: the liberation of non-objective art often meant the new focus on order, form, and purity.

Photography Series and Repetition
May 3, 2019 – June 1, 2019

This show seeks to exhibit the diverse and exciting ways that photographers use sequence and series in their work. Repetition and seriality are built into the every level of photography from the production process, to its aesthetic theory, to the real-life practice of taking pictures. Photographs are often seen as representations or repetitions of reality itself, all while photography itself shapes modern consciousness just as much as it re-creates it. Site:Brooklyn is looking for work that actively engages with all aspects of repetition and series in photography. This might include subject matter, formal qualities, method, presentation, and much else.

ABOUT THE JUROR:
Elisabeth Biondi has been an independent curator, writer. Before that she was the Visuals Editor of The New Yorker for 15 years, where she shaped the look of the publication by establishing a group of staff photographers, commissioning both masters and emerging talent. She built the magazine’s reputation for its use of photography, for which it received numerous awards, including two National Magazine Awards. Her independent curation includes Subjective/Objective and Under the Bridge for the New York PhotoFestival and New Yorker Fiction/Real Photography at Steven Kasher Gallery in Chelsea. Most recently she was a judge in the eight-episodes Sky Arts ‘Master of Photography’, which aired in May/June/July of 2018.

Keeping the Bees: The Importance of Pollinators

June 16 – July 28, 2019

Over 75% of the flowering plants on earth rely on animals and insects for pollination, including nearly 75% of our food crops. Without these creatures such as hummingbirds, bats, bees, beetles, butterflies, and flies, these plants would not be able to produce fruits and seeds, which would be devastating to people and the planet. Join Brushwood Center at Ryerson Woods in bringing attention to the importance and plight of the pollinator in this group art exhibition. We are accepting work in all visual media and styles that feature or are in some way related to pollinators. See below for online resources for more information on pollinators.

Submission Deadline: May 15, 2019

Artist Notification: May 17, 2019

Exhibition: Sunday, June 16 (opening reception 1-3pm) to Sunday, July 28, 2019

Submission:

Artists wishing to apply should email up to three images of examples of the work they intend to enter to: info@brushwoodcenter.org along with their contact info no later than May 15, 2019. If it is not immediately apparent how your work relates to pollinators, please also include a brief artist statement that explains the relation. There is no fee to apply or participate. Brushwood Center will retain 15% of all sales.
