Welcome to the MICA Photography Department
MICA Photo is proud to announce that Sarah Eckstine has had a piece accepted into a group show in “Blank Wall Gallery” located in Athens, Greece. Her image is titled, “I Have Found” and is seen here below.
For MICA Photo’s first-ever curated DPL exhibition, we would like to highlight our department’s female-identifying members. Each person may submit up to three images to be featured on the DPL screen for the week of April 9, 2018. Please follow the sizing requirements set for the screen (1800px on longest side at 72 dpi, sRGB color space). Artist statements/bios are not necessary. Work about femininity/gender is preferred but we are accepting anything you are proud of and want to put forward! Have fun!
The Aperture Summer Open is an annual open-submission exhibition at Aperture Foundation’s gallery in New York, featuring a wide variety of work by photographers from around the world. Selected by a jury of leading editors and critics, the exhibition seeks to reveal and report on key themes and trends driving contemporary photography. The exhibition opens the doors of the foundation to photographers of all ages, at all points in their careers, as we seek to promote new ideas and talent.
The theme of the 2018 Aperture Summer Open is “The Way We Live Now.” The curators seek new bodies of work by photographers defining a moment of rapid change in culture, politics, technology, and self-expression. Across ideas of beauty and style, landscape and environment, and media and connectivity, how do photographs define the currents and contradictions of our moment?
The 2018 Aperture Summer Open is curated by Brendan Wattenberg, managing editor, Aperturemagazine; Siobhán Bohnacker, senior photo editor, the New Yorker; Marvin Orellana, photo editor, New York magazine; and Antwaun Sargent, independent writer and critic.
Winners of the Summer Open will be exhibited in a group show at Aperture Gallery, opening June 28, 2018. All finalists are announced in the foundation’s e-newsletter, which reaches fifty thousand subscribers across the globe, including curators, critics, and members of the photography community.
Don’t forget…MICA Photo is hosting another “Town Hall Meeting” today at 2:00PM in M010.
