Let There Be. An International Call for Lens-Based Art About Tangibility
The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists to submit photographic or lens-based works of art about tangibility. Photography and lens-based art is often, even unconsciously, taken for granted as being disembodied from physical reality. However, without catalytic objects such works would not be possible. For this exhibition Manifest is interested in showcasing works that reveal the 'objectness' of photography either through display of the works themselves, the mechanisms crafted to create lens-based experiences, dialogs between photographic works and their physical subjects, or narrative works explaining the complicated entanglement of light and form. The theme is open to very broad interpretation. Submissions can range from the most traditional to the most conceptual, abstract, or experimental photography, photo-based, or lens-based works. $40 for up to 4 entries. $5 per each additional entry. Deadline: July 25, 2020.
