The deadline for the Singapore International Photography Festival is fast approaching with only 3 days left to submit (a penalty fee is applicable for those who choose to submit after deadline). This is SIPF’s 4th edition, and to commemorate the successes of previous festivals, this Open Call Showcase will be held in collaboration with Noorderlicht International Photofestival (The Netherlands) with a themed open call in addition to the existing Open Call.

The Open Call (truly open with no theme) is interested in discovering new and innovative photographic works from around the globe. As there is no specific genre, theme, subject, the Open Call is truly a survey past and present trends, concerns, concepts and techniques employed by the photographers worldwide.

40 photographers will be selected by the 4th SIPF curators - Dr Charles Merewether, Dr Adele Tan, Tay Kay Chin, and Alexander Supartono. Contingent on exhibition sites, each curator will critically select the work, and curate the exhibitions based on theme or subject matters, approaches, or even by geographical region.

SAVE THE DATE: Mona Kuhn’s Acido Dorado

Posted by Daylight Books on

The Flowers Gallery at Kingsland Road will be exhibiting work by acclaimed LA-based photographer, Mona Kuhn. Shot on the modernist property in the American desert of the same name as the exhibition, Acido Dorado, Kuhn assimilates her distinct renderings of surrealist nudes, often abstracted by shadows, overexposure, and an assortment of other optical fragmenting techniques, with the breathtaking beauty of an America architectural and naturalist landmark. Acido Dorado is an evident exploration of the nude’s place in art history and Kuhn’s ability to bring together the nude, abstractions and landscape into a cohesive body of work demonstrate both her artistic and intellectual prowess.
