OPEN CALL | FEMALIA | PRAXIS DIRECTORS GALLERY 

 

Entry Deadline | Feb 15TH, 2023 

Notice of Acceptance | Feb 23rd, 2023

Theme: Femalia | Curated By: Praxis Directors 

We are programmed to understand gender and femininity within narrow and restrictive definitions. Photographs, both historical and contemporary, often reinforce these definitions and boundaries that no longer serve us.  

 

Photography has the power to transcend all manner of boundaries. It can blur minuscule lines between otherwise dichotomous realms of physical and philosophical space. If we are to reflect on photography’s capacity to challenge concepts of gender and femininity, we enter into an extraordinary opportunity to re-envision and expand our understanding of all who identify as women. We can confront our programmed understandings and reinterpret, both what is in front of the camera and what is behind it.  

 

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art created by or about women image-makers, including trans-women, femme/feminine-identifying, genderqueer, and non-binary lens-based photographic artists. This is an inclusive call that is open to all that apply. All genres, capture types, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Eligibility:

Art Fluent invites artists worldwide to submit artwork to our online exhibit, WABI-SABI.
JPEGs due by Friday, May 27 at midnight (MST). Over $1,200 in cash prizes. All accepted pieces will be displayed in our online gallery at www.art-fluent.com. Visit https://www.art-fluent.com/wabi-sabi-prospectus for a full prospectus.

WABI-SABI is a Japanese term that refers to that which is impermanent, imperfect, aged, humbled, and unconventional. It is a state of mind and a way of being. It expresses a whole new world of seeing. Perhaps being open to mistakes and accidents will lead us somewhere new, beautiful, and authentic. As artists, we know this all too well. Visually it is the simplicity of composition and exploring the meaning and beauty of everyday objects. Show us WABI-SABI from your perspective.

The ESC open call is on! For the last time this year, contemporary gallery VVOVVA invites you to join the wave #2031 Autumn/Winter. Aiming to build the future together we ask artists to ‘Create art as you would do in 10 years in the future.’ We peek into distant and unreachable concepts of the world, humanity, nature, and technology.

The fourth wave features the amazing digital platform YYYYMMDD, that in collaboration with VVOVVA, will be the voice in search of the most interesting works. Run by the talented Daniela Grabosch, YYYYMMDD is not only a meeting point that initiates dialogues, but also a collection of art. This digital archive exists without walls and also is an aggregator of art exhibitions generated from various galleries. Daniela Grabosch not only curates her selections with genuine solicitude and attention but also with a strong theoretical and intellectual point of view. 

The submission period starts on October 25 and ends on February 10. The selected artists will be notified by email and published in a digital exhibition at VVOVVA on March 1
