TRANSITIONS - Take part in a photography exhibition in Brussels

Share

Eligibility:

Transition is the process of changing from one state or condition to another. The moment of the in-between is often very special. For this new exhibition, we invite artists to consider ways in which photography can explore this concept. The fields in which the notion of transition can apply are numerous: politics, society, biology, culture, environment, climate, psychology, technology, architecture, and many more. It can be considered in a global perspective or related to one’s personal story, being for instance a formal, physical or mental transformation regarding gender, status or age. All approaches of the subject are welcome. More than anything, we are looking for works that open up new perspectives or ways of thinking.

The selected artists will take part in a collective exhibition at the gallery of Peinture Fraîche in Brussels in June 2020.

Deadline: February 25, 2020
