Abstracts

Eligibility:

J. Mane Gallery invites submissions for its Abstracts online juried art exhibition.

Abstract art uses the visual language of shapes, form, color and texture to create a composition that is independent from visual references in the world.  It can mean anything in an artist's emotional life they want it to mean.  It awakens our curiosity as viewers about the limits of our imagination.

We invite you to submit work that best represents your interpretation of Abstract art.  All artists over the age of 18, regardless of location or experience, are encouraged to submit their best art and photography.

CLOSE-UP

Call for Exhibition │Free entry

Accepted media: Photography, Video

Group Exhibition in Rome. November 2023

-

Photographers and videomakers are invited to submit works that respond to the execution mode of Close-Up shooting. An open call without limits as far as the genres, styles and stories that could be told. The Close-Up is a technique that allows the revelation of details, particulars and traits that characterize the person portrayed, and identify them as unique and singular, just as their stories, their personality and their emotions are.

The collection of works on display will therefore be the expression of an act and of the fruition of a product that offers itself as an opportunity for relationship with others. All of this in a warm, personal and empathetic encounter, where author, subject and user are all called to participate.

Eligibility:

Guest Room aims to spark collaboration. Franziska Kunze, Chief Curator of Photography and Time-Based Media at the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich, has chosen to collaborate with Marta Binazzi, who is Photo Archivist at the Biblioteca Berenson, Villa I Tatti, the Centre for Italian Renaissance of the Harvard University.

Together, they have developed the following framework for your submissions: “An archive is an archive is an archive”.

With “An archive is an archive is an archive” – adopted from Gertrude Stein’s echoing and brilliant quote – Franziska Kunze and Marta Binazzi want to explore the possibilities of archival matters within photography. What do photographs do in archives? What do archives do with photographs? What do you do with both?

NYC4PA CALL FOR ENTRY PATTERNS AND SHADOWS

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Walking anywhere in the world at different times of day you can see dramatic changes as the light goes from midday bright to dusk.  Early morning/late afternoon light can transform a simple scene to one of great interest as shadows grow longer and shorter.  Consider city streets with shadows of tall buildings crossing sidewalks, cars, busses and people.  Similarly bright light casting shadows on a flight of stairs creates a canvas of black and white stripes. Just as powerful are shots where the impact of the image is derived from patterns in the composition such as the line-up of palm trees in the tropics with the shadows cast along a sandy beach, rows of theater chairs etc. Different images, interesting interpretations of your own shadow are welcome as well.  Be creative - send us your best.
