“photographic performance 2020”
Do you have a body of work or a concept for an exhibition that is photography or photography based? We are looking for compelling solo or cooperative exhibitions to fill our interior salon space. It can be only photographic images, photography combined with mixed media, photography as sculpture, photography based installations or….. This is the fourth year for “the photographic performance” and we are hoping once again you can show us what it can be. It is important that the body of work has a conceptual narrative, actual or implied.
Four exhibition proposals will be selected to be exhibited in the Salon from either May 15 to June 7, June 12 to July 5, July 10 to August 2 or August 7 to August 30, 2020.
Along with each entry application, a written proposal or artist statement explaining the exhibition and a rough lay-out of how the Salon gallery space would be used should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. For any questions regarding the size or configuration of the Salon gallery space, please email email@example.com.
Creativity is encouraged.
