N.Y. Photo Curator ‘Grief’ curated by Frances Jakubek
N.Y. Photo Curator Call for Entry: ‘Grief’ with curator Frances Jakubek (Head of Exhibitions at Bruce Silverstein Galley, New York City & past associate curator at the Griffin Museum of Photography in Massachusetts.)
“What cannot be said will be wept.” ― Sappho
Jakubek says, “Our hearts can break in many different ways. We expect mourning to end but oftentimes it manifests in other actions. We learn to restructure our lives and identify our worst thoughts as an avenue for growth. Maybe it leads to art making. Maybe we photographed this seemingly impossible event. We create photographs for different reasons, whether personal, political, for the purpose of change or a combination of these motivations.
This call is for images made anywhere along the path of the grieving process. We can be dealing with feelings of premonition, fear, and anxiety. Anticipation can lead us to act out in despair, in defense, to find avenues to re-direct anger. Then perhaps we can focus on care-taking, healing, rebuilding, and surviving. Every day may feel different and reactions can vary within a moment. The ability to fully experience emotions is a gift and it can translate in so many ways. The goal for this exhibition is to open a dialogue about understanding how we all cope and respond with our individual difficulties and how different they could possibly be, and most times, how similar.”
20% of artist fees go to charity. 10% to the curator’s charity and 10% to the first place winner’s charity.
Jakubek has chosen Facing Addiction as her charity.
$20 for 3 images. ALL entrants work is shown on their own page with their artist statement, website info, portions of their bio and CV.
Two fee waivers are available a month. Email and ask at [email protected]
