CALL FOR ENTRIES | FOUND OBJECTS | AN INTERNATIONAL JURIED PHOTO EXHIBITION

THEME | FOUND OBJECTS

A "found object" is a physical artifact that can be discovered by chance and assigned esthetic value in an artist’s hand. Found art objects may include a wide array of items that were either forgotten, discarded, misplaced or dropped like old photographs, signs, shoes, a fork, shopping carts, abandoned cars, doll heads, industrial machinery, clocks, mementos, or any object that can be reimagined through the lens of a camera. A found object is art as long as the artist believes that the discovered object possesses a certain aesthetic or talismanic quality - stemming from its appearance, personal or social history.

Praxis gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores this idiom. Submitted work 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.

JUROR: The juror is Laura Migliorino. She was born in Cleveland Ohio, and grew up in a Chicago Heights, a Chicago suburb. Migliorino received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and her MFA is from the University of Minnesota. Migliorino has received a number of grants from the Jerome Foundation, several Minnesota State Arts Board grants and various exhibition prizes. Her work is part of the permanent collection of the Walker Art Center, Weisman Museum in Minneapolis and The Minnesota Center for Book Arts. Her work has been exhibited internationally for over 30 years.

AWARDS: Thirty images will be selected by the juror for exhibition at Praxis Gallery. A Juror’s Choice and two Honorable Mentions will be awarded by the juror and featured in the exhibition, the printed show catalog and the online show gallery. Award winners will receive a free show catalog. The Directors Choice Award will be given to the artist with the strongest series of images submitted and will have their work featured at praxisgallery.com.
