Winter 2019 Show - Open Call

with juror Sarah Kennel, The Byrne Family Curator of Photography at Peabody Essex Museum.

The Curated Fridge   /   Deadline: 12/29/18


Kennel joined PEM in 2015, following a nine-year curatorial tenure at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., where she helped oversee the National Gallery's photography collection and managed an active exhibition program. In 2013, Kennel won first prize from the Association of Art Museum Curators for an essay on Charles Marville, a little-known French photographer who captured rapid and dramatic change in 19th-century Paris. She organized the related exhibition, Charles Marville: Photographer of Paris, which traveled to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Kennel holds an M.A. and Ph.D. in art history from the University of California, Berkeley and a B.A. from Princeton University. She is coordinating an upcoming exhibition of Samuel F. B. Morse's 1833 grand work Gallery of the Louvre and curating a major traveling exhibition of Sally Mann's work, to be co-organized with the National Gallery of Art.




The Call for Entrée is open to all photographers world wide, both amateur and professional. All mediums are invited.

Please note that only complete submissions will be considered, so take your time and send over your materials as requested.

If printing is not your selling point or you think that your prints won't make it on time because you live outside the U.S., you can use a printing company (Shutterfly, Mpix etc). They are very cheap, fast and reliable.
