International Deadline: April 15, 2018 – Manifest Manifest Creative Research Gallery announces a call for photo-based exhibition proposals.
This photo-based exhibition proposal is offered for those artists
working in and around photo-based media who may have a strong interest
in participating at Manifest during the FotoFocus Biennial in
Anyone can submit a proposal. Artists should bear in mind the
need for a consistent and very strong body of work when submitting.
Open to all traditional and non-traditional genre and media
qualified in some way as ‘photographic’. Experimental and
non-traditional approaches to photo-based artwork, including
mixed-media, collage, etc. are all welcome.
The annual Manifest Grand Jury Prize will result in the awarding of one
cash prize ($2500) to a single work selected as the ‘best of the entire
season’. The winner will be determined by a final end-of-year jury from
among a pool of all top-scoring works from each exhibit’s jury process
across the exhibition season. Solo exhibitors will automatically have
one work of their choosing (or the Manifest Director’s choosing, should
the artist wish it) from their exhibition included in the Grand Jury
Manifest Press produces full-color catalogs documenting the works
selected for every exhibit presented in our galleries. The publication
is designed and printed within the first quarter of the following
season, and expected to ship by the following spring. Manifest’s exhibit
season runs September to September each year.
JURY & CURATOR
Manifest’s main selection process involves a complex two-part system.
Most exhibits are juried by an anonymous panel of professional and
academic advisors with a broad range of expertise.
Each proposal must be accompanied by a $50 non-refundable submission fee. Number of works is not limited.
