Call for Entry: Darkside Collective

COVID-19 surfaced in late 2019 and presented the world with a major health crisis that shut down many countries within days. With this came the shutdown of colleges and universities. Art students in the class of 2020 were left wondering “How am I going to finish my thesis project, and who is going to see it if my exhibition is cancelled?” For many, this was a devastating blow. Darkside Collective is committed to helping emerging artists, including students, and as an online collective, we aim to feature BFA and MFA thesis work online. If your thesis show was cancelled, send us your work to be featured on our website. Unlike many of the online thesis exhibitions being advertised right now, there is no jury process. Simply upload your work and we’ll post it on the site!

Opening Reception: Friday, September 7, 7 – 9 PM

Curator/photographer Lynn Silverman presents the book, Evidence, regarded as a seminal collection of photographs edited by Larry Sultan and Mike Mandel, and a video of its pages. Silverman discovered the book in a bookstore in the 1970’s. It ignited a new understanding of the photographic image as document and its relationship to narrative leading her to a practice committed to conceptual photography.

ABOUT THE SHOW

This year, communities of artists across the United States are generating artwork in celebration of women, racial and sexual equality, marriage equality, gender identity, environmental protection, affordable health care and access to safe and legal abortion. In tandem with this cultural movement, Art Rise Savannah is partnering with Planned Parenthood Southeast to organize its first feminist exhibition of 2017.

The Personal is Political examines the relationship between personal experience and the political structures we navigate in our daily lives. It engages art as a vehicle of civic action, featuring works by national artists committed to investigating identity, freedom and resistance through their practice.

Show run dates: March 10 – March 20, 2017

MICA Photo is pleased to announce the reception this evening for the current work on display in the Wilgus Gallery, “Seeking Stephanie”, by Evie Metz. This opening reception features a special curation of Evie’s photographs from her ongoing series, Seeking Stephanie.
“Reacting to what I see, I capture moments where I find connections. As though I’ve found another piece to my puzzle, another line to poem. Accumulating many photographs, I construct my narrative about identity, the beauties of life often overlooked, and what I mean to seek oneself.”  ~ Evie Metz
