Open Call For Recession Art’s Facts And Fictions Submissions are open for Facts and Fictions, our Spring 2013 show at Recession Art and the Invisible Dog.Deadline Monday March 11, 11:59pm
Facts and Fictions, curated by co-founder and Art Director, Ani Katz, will present works that explore themes of fiction, narrative, storytelling, and the tension between what is true and what is real.
In a photograph, your friend is no longer your friend; he is a pattern of light and shadow and geometry on a piece of paper or a screen, and nothing about him exists beyond the discrete parcel of time in which you made the exposure. There is a fiction in every photograph. However, just because something isn’t true doesn’t mean it can’t be real. One can see and believe in ways that have nothing to do with truth.
Facts and Fictions welcomes work in all media and a variety of presentations, with a particular focus on photographic and lens-based work, artist books, and other narrative media.
I love that description “There is a fiction in every photograph.”
Are you entering a piece for this show? If so can you show us beforehand?
Yes, I like the description as well–it is thought provoking.
There is still plenty of time to think about a submission. It is a good idea to show it beforehand. I’ll think about doing that for a future blog post. thanks
Neat. I hope you do.
