|Anthologies : Nine Artists, Nine Stories : a juried small-group exhibition
Praxis Gallery’s biennial small group exhibition returns for its third year with an open call for narrative-based collections of photographic art. Nine artists’ collections of four photographs will be featured in the 2024 ANTHOLOGIES exhibit in The Lab Gallery at Praxis Photo Arts Center. Directors’ Choice wins a solo exhibition in The Lab Gallery.
The word ANTHOLOGIES derives from the Greek meaning “to gather or collect”. In this precise sense, Praxis Gallery seeks to explore the manner in which photographic artists gather and organize images into collections to creating meaning. This is not an exercise in sequencing images or creating linear chronologies. It is more an interpretive exploration of the interdependence of each image vis a vis the collective meaning of the group. The viewer is invited to extract their own subjectivities, to search for meaning in collected photographs that may seem meandering, anfractuous, and excursionary – as much as they may also seem explicit and absolute in substance.
These stories may take any shape or form. They may be documentary, drama, fantasy, myth, literal or ephemeral, poetic or political, or any other iteration of the theme. All genres, themes, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
