Open Call Gallery

We host four Open Calls each year during the Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. Selected artists will have their work displayed in our lab space, on our website, and featured on our social media.

Submissions for our Summer 2019 Open Call will open on July 3.

Spring 2019 Open Call: (in)visibility

“Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see.” - Magritte speaking on Le fils de l'homme

Aesthetic choices such as composition and quality of light often carry deeper meanings about what is revealed and concealed to the viewer. The choice to disclose or cover up are used by artists and documentarians to challenge preconceived notions and raise questions about social and political events or issues.

In Open Call: (in)visibility, we’re seeking images that explore the boundary between the visible and invisible. How do you decide what to reveal and conceal in your work, and why?
