Manifest Gallery' Photo-Based Solo Exhibitions
By Manifest Manifest Creative Research Gallery

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 particular.

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 Prize pool.

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.

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.

Visit Manifest Gallery online to Apply. The online submission process is preferred. However, discs may be submitted (see details on Prospectus).
