SPE 2021 Combined Caucus Exhibition / Deadline: 12/12/20
The 9th Annual SPE Combined Caucus Exhibition is an open theme, juried exhibition of the Multicultural, LGBTQ and Women's caucuses within the Society for Photographic Education. Photographers working with any/all photographic techniques are encouraged to apply.
Juror: Endia Beal
Endia Beal is a North Carolina based artist, curator, and author. Beal's work merges fine arts with social injustice. She uses photography and video to reveal the often overlooked and unappreciated experiences unique to people of color. Specifically, Beal's first monograph,
Performance Review, brings together work over a 10-year period that highlights the realities and challenges for women of color in the corporate workplace. She lectures about these experiences, which also addresses bias in corporate hiring practices.
The Multicultural Caucus supports and promotes multicultural image makers and image making in regional, national, and international contexts. It functions as a venue for the discussion of cultural issues by people of diverse cultural backgrounds; and confronts visual, educational, and social-political issues with integrity, honesty, and justice.
The Women's Caucus is committed to the advancement of women in the profession of photography and photographic education and to the advancement of women's issues in the exhibition, discussion and teaching of image making.
The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) Caucus within SPE exists to provide a safe and progressive environment for LGBTQ image makers and educators. The caucus strives to strengthen the position of all LGBTQ people and to help create, develop, and support the current and next generations of LGBTQ artists and art educators.
