SUBJECT OF THE WANTED WORKS: “Museums, Galleries, Exhibitions” Since the dawn of humanity, artistic creation and its production has always been at the service of the main cults, deities and religions. Today, relics of all kind, art objects, memorabilia, artefacts of scientific progress, historical valuables have taken the position of the cult. Museums, galleries, festivals, fairs have become the stages of celebration of the cult of valuable priceless and useless objects. In different countries of the world the art institutions and events reach the attendance of tens, hundreds of thousands and even millions. Spaces, places, contexts, where artistic, historical, scientific, or other valuables are displayed, play a role of an oasis for those exhausted by the speedy routine. This phenomenon does not escape the eyes of artists, including photographers.

KAUNAS PHOTO festival is calling for photographers / visual artists to submit series of photographs, photography-related videos or installation projects on the theme of MUSEUMS, GALLERIES, EXHIBITIONS, art fairs, festivals, etc. Among the interesting subjects could be: process of installation of exhibitions, backstage of museum / gallery / fair life, audience, empty halls and lines to enter museums, openings of exhibitions and launching events, etc. The exhibition will be based on series of photographs (not single images), but photography-related video or installations are also accepted. The works submitted should be created in the 21st century, but works that reveal the layers of time and contain or depart from older visual material are welcome.

30 Under 30 / Women Photographers

Posted by Daylight Books on

image/png icon

30 Under 30 / Women Photographers is a unique annual online exhibit of photography featuring a selection of 30 women photographers from around the globe under the age of 30. And on the heels of International Women's Day, this exhibit's relative poignancy is not only clear but also important. The male-gaze and its subject, the woman, is a sociological and historical relationship that has percolated into the art of photography. It is this gendered relationship between the 'masculine' act of looking and the 'feminine' act of being looked upon that 30 Under 30 / Women Photographers wishes to disrupt.

Applications for the third annual Atelier Smedsby workshop are now being accepted. The Atelier Smedsby workshop is a 12 month long distance learning class incorporating three individual/group meetings in Paris. In between these meetings in Paris, participants will give monthly reports on the progress of their works via Skype. During these monthly reports, particpants will be able to ask questions, demonstrate the evolution of their work, receive evaluations and feedback. These monthly reports are the base of the workshop and we expect them to be well prepared by the participants. Of course the participants will have the possibility to communicate with Atelier Smedsby between these monthly reports as well. For the Euro-centric, traveling photographer, this is a particuarly great opportunity.
