N.Y. Photo Curator ‘Self-Conscious’ Curator: Frances Jakubek
Jakubek says, “This exhibition is calling out for image makers who are exploring visual depictions of the self. The photographs should reflect an awareness of existence and consciousness, whether depicting how we perceive our self in a greater conversation, (environmentally, politically, etc), or through self-portraiture. Our personal histories inform our responses to world events, relationships and different circumstances…how do we show this photographically?
Examples of the scope: Elinor Carucci’s photograph, Mother puts on my lipstick from 1993 is an example of direct personal information compared to an image like Patrick Nagatani’s from “Nuclear Enchantment,” discovering his home as it correlates to the history of war. We each have our own unique history and the way we view the world and our place in it; I am interested in viewing images that embody the importance and anxiety of being self-conscious.”
10% of artist entry fees goes to the curator’s choice of charity. Jakubek chose the Adaptive Surf Project as her charity.
Another 10% will go to the first place winner’s choice of charity
