Deadline for submissions: February 28, 2012, 11:59 PM
This June, Humble Arts Foundation, in conjunction with Magenta Foundation, will present Small Works, an exhibition of 50, 8 x 10 inch photographic prints curated by Jon Feinstein and Amani Olu. Feinstein and Olu will select works from an international open call to exhibit at the Flash Forward Festival in Boston.
Small Works encourages artists and viewers to move past the idea that “bigger is better,” and instead demands a more intimate interaction with the work. We are interested in work that in small size encourages a delicacy not often taken with images viewed at large scale or online, and a return to appreciating the photographic print as a distinct object. As with other Humble exhibitions, we are interested in a range of work that pushes the boundaries of the photographic medium, breaking from rigid genre-based classifications for a more fluid understanding of photography’s potential.
