Call for Entry: The Found Object


Praxis Gallery

International Juried Photography Exhibition

The Found Object

Deadline: July 22nd, 2018.
Exhibition Dates: Aug 24th - Sept 18th, 2018

Theme | The Found Object

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 seeks photographic art that explores this idiom. Submissions may be a study of the “found object” as pure visual form, detached from its history or utility. Conversely, the representation of the object may be a catalyst for exploring broader issues such as subjectivity and socialization, memory and loss, or love and death. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission
