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: 

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

Exgirlfriend Berlin Annual Open Call

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Exgirlfriend is now accepting proposals for our 2020/2021  exhibition cycle.

Submissions will be accepted from October 2nd, 2019 until December 10th, 2019. No late proposals will be accepted. All proposals should be submitted digitally in PDF format. Only PDF submissions will be accepted. PLEASE email us first for the complete rules and guidelines for a submission before sending any application materials.

Exgirlfriend is a contemporary gallery and artist studio space located in the Alt-Mariendorf neighborhood of Berlin. Founded and curated by Elena Feijoo, we are devoted to exhibiting artists from all backgrounds, generations, dispositions and disciplines. Exgirlfriend focuses on conceptually rigorous work that is not limited to traditional modes of making. We intend to create a reputation for blurring the line between project space and commercial gallery. For our 2020/2021 season, we will host 5 exhibitions, each determined from our open call. We believe the format of the open call is a great equalizer which benefits our space as much as it gives new opportunities to a much larger scope of artists. Our goal is to support artists by presenting high quality and daring exhibitions and through marketing, promoting, and selling their work. For more information on our exhibiting artists and our previous programmes, please see exgirlfriendberlin.com

The space contains one large 150 sqm exhibition space & a renovated kitchen/bar all within our sister non-profit company, HER. HER is a 1,000 square meter hall hosting artist studios and artist co-production spaces. We also host a series of artist presentations, visits, talks, and curated events which can coincide with our main exhibitions.

 Exhibitions

Exhibitions run for 3 weeks unless otherwise specified and agreed. The reviewing process will start in December at the end of the open call and the announcements on exhibition decisions will be made in January. Our first exhibition will begin in August 2020. Everyone will receive a decision by the end of January. 

If your proposal is in the final round of considerations, you will receive an email from our staff asking to organize a meeting either in person or via Skype. If selected, we will contact you to welcome you to the 2020/2021 year with a package of information and details regarding your potential exhibition and to determine a time slot. 

Once Exgirlfriend accepts a proposal, we put much of the decision making into the hands of the artists, giving artists and curators the freedom to actualize their ideas in a physical space. Our managing director will work one on one with each group or artist to execute the exhibition in the best way possible. Although we are a commercial gallery (we do suggest applicants take that into account) we have always exhibited typically non-commercial presentations such as installations and site specific works. 

Proposals

Proposals should clearly articulate and present (1) an exhibition idea which strongly considers the gallery’s aesthetic focus and physical space and (2) the current work of the artist/s. It should not focus on artist’s past work or experience, although a CV is required. 

Specificity and clarity are key (!)

All artists involved must provide a website with up to date examples of their current work.

Proposals will be judged on quality/feasibility of exhibition proposal and quality of artist’s recent work.

Please specify in headline of email along with desired time of year(Spring, Summer, Fall, or Winter 2019 etc) whether you are applying for a:

- Solo exhibit

- Two person exhibit

- Curatorial project

- other

If an artist would like to submit their portfolio or a certain body of work for consideration to be curated into a show arranged by the Exgirlfriend curatorial board, this is also accepted. Proposal focus should then be on specific project or body of work. 

Format of Proposals

Exgirlfriend accepts all types of proposals, there are no guidelines or restrictions on length, image size, quantity etc. the ONLY requirement is that they are submitted as one PDF file with the following elements included:

1)Title page/introduction/overview

This helps provide small grants to the artists for production as well as help cover other costs that directly affect our ability to create an experimental space and not just a commercially focused gallery. Please include a receipt of transfer in your PDF packet. 

The fee must be received before December 10th for all applications or application will not be considered
