GESTE Paris 2018 – Binary / Non-Binary
For its third edition GESTE Paris will present an exhibition of photo based artworks and video on the theme Binary / Non-Binary, including for the first time an Open Call selection by an exceptional jury. The exhibition dates are November 5 – December 2, 2018.
GESTE Paris is an annual underground exhibition of experimental photography organised Shiva Lynn Burgos. GESTE brings together vintage and contemporary works by both established and emerging artists. Like a secret speakeasy GESTE is presented in the convivial setting of a classic Parisian apartment that provides a space for reflection and dialogue. GESTE is the nexus of a private collection, artwork from leading galleries, and a selection by invited curators. For Binary / Non-Binary the curators are Shiva Lynn Burgos (US/France), Georg Bak (Switzerland) and Alisa Phommaxahay (France/Laos).
For the first time GESTE is hosting an Open Call to widen the scope of participation and invites submissions of photo based artworks and video.
Submissions are to be made via picter.com. This require creating an account and there is a small fee for entry. Closing date is 19 October.
Although based in Paris we positively welcome international submissions from around the world. GESTE Paris is committed to experimental processes and invites photo-based artworks from outside the normal bounds of photography.
Black or white, on or off, male or female, digital or analog, zero or one. A binary viewpoint divides the world cleanly and everything is in one category or the other, as two alternatives existing in opposition. The non-binary viewpoint opens the world up to a multiplicity of categories, rejecting the simplification and contrasting nature of the binary position and yet must include both the single and the infinite.
How do artists exemplify these concepts today and how do they co-exist ?
