International Deadline: August 26, 2014 - Highly regarded Manifest Creative Research Gallery announces 'Neither HERE nor THERE...", a competitive international exhibition exploring location, humility, and the in-between through photography and other lens-based work.
First, this is not a landscape exhibit! Although works of landscape are also eligible. Works selected will represent location by virtue of their creation in a particular place, regardless of subject matter. They may or may not also represent ordinary everyday things, events, places, ideas, or such subjects in a transitional context.
This exhibit has no predefined expectation for type or style of work to be considered or selected. Submissions can range from the most traditional to the most conceptual, abstract, or experimental, including traditional, digital, and other photographic methods. The only criteria beyond excellent quality (image/presentation) is that works must qualify as being primarily photographic, including that which tests the boundaries of the discipline.
Neither HERE nor THERE open to everyone. The only limitation beyond the general theme is that entries must represent original works which qualify in some considerable way as photography or lens-based art.
Open to any and all traditional and non-traditional visual arts media applicable to the practice and discipline of photography.
Manifest's carefully assembled juries change from project to project, and as a body have no collective predisposition towards any particular kind or style of art.
Over its ten seasons of non-profit programming Manifest's competitive projects have attracted submissions by artists from 89 countries and all 50 U.S. states. In honor of this global vitality focused from there to here (from the world to our humble spot in Cincinnati, Ohio) we offer Neither Here nor There as an invitation for artists near and far to reveal aspects of location in their photographic and lens-based works of visual art.
This exhibition is generously sponsored by a grant from FotoFocus and will be featured during the month-long Cincinnati region-wide FotoFocus biennial during the month of October.
JURY & CURATOR
Manifest's selection process involves a complex two-part system. This exhibit will be juried by an anonymous several-member panel of professional and academic advisors with a broad range of expertise relative to art and design.
$1000 Best of Show Prize
Manifest Press will produce a high quality hard-cover publication documenting this exhibition, artists, and works shown, along the other new season exhibitions.
$36 for up to three entries submitted. $10 per each additional entry. Fees are non-refundable.
