Observations in the Ordinary

Subjectively Objective   /   Deadline: 02/28/19

Download in PDF Format

We're accepting submissions of up to 10 images for the upcoming book & exhibition, Observations in the Ordinary, curated by Subjectively Objective founder Noah Waldeck. The submission deadline is February 28th. Everyone who submits is entitled to a free copy of the book, regardless of whether your work is accepted. In addition to appearing in the book and online exhibition, accepted artists will also have the opportunity to participate in a physical exhibition at Subjectively Objective's Detroit area gallery space.

Submitting also gives you a chance to be featured on our website. The sooner you submit, the greater your chance of being featured.

Don't worry about taking the title too literally. We're interested in seeing all types of contemporary landscape, portrait, conceptual, and documentary work. You don't need to limit yourself though, we're always looking out for ways to feature or publish good work, even if it isn't right for this publication.

Once you've paid your submission fee, you'll be able to download a PDF which provides further instructions on the submissions process.

Observations in the Ordinary is follow up to our last call for entries, The Vernacular of Landscape, which resulted in a book featuring 58 artists, physical exhibitions in Detroit and NYC, an online exhibition, numerous Instagram features, and Subjectively Objective monographs for 15 of the artists who submitted. Even if you've submitted before, we'd love to see your work again.
