THE FOUND OBJECT | CALL FOR ENTRIES | AN INTERNATIONAL JURIED PHOTO EXHIBITION

 THE FOUND OBJECT | JUROR: Elizabeth Flinsch

A "found object" is an artifact discovered by chance and assigned aesthetic value by an artist’s hand.  Found art can include a wide array of objects and items that are either dropped, discarded, forgotten, or misplaced – such as shopping carts, shoes, a fork, abandoned cars, signs, doll heads, clocks, mementos, or any object that can be reimagined through the lens of a camera. This holds true 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.

The Praxis Gallery is accepting submissions of photographic art that investigate this idiom; exploring the subject of the “found object” as pure visual form, detached from its history or utility - or conversely, the representation of the object as a catalyst for exploring broader issues such as subjectivity and socialization, memory and loss, or love and death. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
