Artificial Things - Shutter Hub Exhibition Application Form
THE EXHIBITION - ARTIFICIAL THINGS
There will always be a question over the photographic image as to whether it can ever truly capture reality, but with ‘Artificial Things’ we’d like to explore that idea further, to bring together photographic artists who use photography to explore and merge the boundaries of the fake and the real.
This exhibition will endeavour to bring together contemporary photography that reaches across the medium into alternative and historical processes and stretches the format of photography to it’s very edges whilst broadly investigating the theme of ‘Artificial Things’.
This call is for wall hanging and 3D photographic work. We have a number of covered plinths to display photographic sculpture, book, installation etc.
We want to create a really dynamic exhibition, the theme is open to your interpretation and we will consider all proposals. When you have entered your work, if you wish to add a description, please email it to [email protected] marking it Artifcial Things and including your name in the subject header.
Shutter Hub are working closely with Cambridge University on this exhibition and there will be the opportunity for you to propose accompanying events/talks at the University. If this is something that interests you please email a brief outline to [email protected] marking it Cambridge Proposal.
You can enter up to 5 images (if you are entering 3D works please send images that show them clearly as they would be installed). All photography is acceptable, including alternative processes and art which includes photography as a main component.
