THE FOUND OBJECT | CALL FOR ENTRIES | AN INTERNATIONAL JURIED PHOTO EXHIBITION

Entry Deadline | February 28th, 2021
Notice of Acceptance | March 12th, 2021
Exhibition Dates | April 17th – May 1st, 2021


THE FOUND OBJECT | JUROR: Elizabeth Flinsch
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, signs, doll heads, abandoned cars, clocks, mementos, or any object that can be reimagined through the lens of a camera… so 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 accepts submissions of photographic art that investigates this idiom; exploring the subject of the "found object" as pure visual form, detached from its history or utility - or conversely, the representation of the object as a catalyst for exploring broader issues such as subjectivity and socialization, memory and loss, or love and death. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
