2022 MWSPE Regional Conference

Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza - Cincinnati, Ohio   |   October 06 - October 09, 2022

This year's theme highlights works concerned with the ebb and flow of social, political, and artistic trends and how these tropes and themes can return with differing focus and intensity. This conference and corresponding exhibitions focus on the incoming swell of ideas, explorations, and concerns of artists within the Midwest and how they see, process, and contextualize the recurrence and reemergence of social, political, and artistic tropes and trends in their own practices. In turn, this conference will serve as an artistic interpretation of world events / records from the perspective of artists from across the Midwest.  MWSPE Regional Conference Call for Proposals MWSPE Regional Conference Student Exhibition Call for Entries About FotoFocus: "Founded in 2010 in Cincinnati, Ohio, FotoFocus is a nonprofit organization created to celebrate and champion photography as the medium of our time through programming that ignites a dialogue between contemporary lens-based art and the history of photography. FotoFocus presents lens-based signature programming, including the FotoFocus Biennial, FotoFocus Symposium, FotoFocus Talks Series, and Film and Video programming. FotoFocus has collaborated with organizations, curators, academics, and artists to present more than 750 exhibitions and programs to provide uniquely enriching access to lens-based art, film, and practices inspired by photography. FotoFocus has awarded over 600 grants to support partners presenting projects and educational programs that are accessible and engaging to the public. About the 2022 FotoFocus Biennial: The 2022 FotoFocus Biennial, now in its sixth iteration, activates over 100 projects at museums, galleries, universities, and public spaces throughout Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky, Dayton, and Columbus, Ohio in October 2022. Each Biennial is structured around a unifying theme; for 2022 that theme, World Record, considers photography's extensive record of life on earth while exploring humankind's impact on the natural world. FotoFocus welcomes global artists, curators, critics, educators, and regional visitors to Cincinnati with exhibitions, talks, performances, screenings, and panel discussions during an expanded week of programming, September 29–October 8, 2022.
