CALL FOR ENTRIES | FOUND OBJECTS | AN INTERNATIONAL JURIED PHOTO EXHIBITION
Entry Deadline | July 22th, 2018
Notice of Acceptance | August 8th, 2018
Exhibition Dates | August 24th – September 19th, 2018
THEME | FOUND OBJECTS
A “found object” is a material artifact discovered by chance and assigned esthetic value in an artist’s hand. Found art may include a wide array of objects and items either discarded, forgotten, dropped, or misplaced – such as shoes, a fork, shopping carts, old photographs, signs, doll heads, industrial machinery, abandoned cars, clocks, mementos, or any object that can be reimagined through the lens of a camera… as long as the artist believes that the discovered object possesses a certain aesthetic or talismanic quality – stemming from its appearance, social or personal history.
Praxis gallery seeks photographic art that explores this idiom. Submissions may be a study of the “found object” as pure visual form, detached from its history or utility. Conversely, the representation of the object may be a catalyst for exploring broader issues such as subjectivity and socialization, memory and loss, or love and death. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
