Deadline: July 6th, 2018, midnight MST
From their call: Photography has a complex relationship to truth that leads all the way back to the invention of the medium. Our current culture adds to the immediacy of trickery, with claims of fake news and polarizing viewpoints, even without imagery to back it up – and what would an image prove anyway? From spirit photography to digital manipulation, photography has had to battle with an image that includes both reality and deception. For this juried exhibit, the Colorado Photographic Arts Center is inviting you to explore themes related to lies and the effect that misinformation has on our culture. Maybe by exploring work that talks about the prevalence of lies, we will find important truth about ourselves.
Eligibility: Entry is open to regional, national, and international artists, members and non-members of CPAC. All lens-based media are eligible, including but not limited to images made by film or video camera, scanner, screen-capture, digital camera, and any means of mobile photography..
Juror: Richard McCabe has worked within the curatorial department of the Ogden Museum of Southern Art since 2005 and was named its curator of photography in 2010. He has taught photography at Pratt Institute in New York City, Fairfield University in Connecticut, Montclair State University in New Jersey, and Xavier in New Orleans. His photographs, paintings, drawings, and installation art have been exhibited in numerous galleries and museums throughout the United States. In 2017, Aint – Bad press published LAND STAR a monograph of McCabe’s photography.
