Eligibility and Media
The show theme is MEDIUM:
Photography mediates the world. Artists continue to challenge and expand the possibilities of what can be expressed through this medium. How can we see what cannot be seen? How can we represent that which has not been represented? And how can we expand the ability of the lens-based arts to articulate what we care most about? Medium is an opportunity to think about the role of the artist and how we might challenge and expand our ideas about what lens-based arts look like and what they can accomplish.
The exhibition is open to all current non-student members of SPE. All photographic and/or lens-based practices will be considered but work must have been completed within the last 3 years.
