Venice Arts Gallery - Call for Submissions
In his book “Non-Places: Introduction to an Anthropology
of Supermodernity,” Marc Augé coined the phrase “nonplace” to refer to transient places—such as freeways, airports,
supermarkets, and big box stores—which do not hold enough
significance to be regarded as “places.” These non-places
seem at first to be anonymous and interchangeable, devoid of
memory or a sense of belonging. Yet as more and more our of
daily lives are spent occupying such ‘non-places,’ artists are
investigating the ways in which the particularities of ‘place’—
humanity, storytelling, and belonging—can come out of or be
revealed in the non-place.
Venice Arts Gallery, located in Los Angeles, CA, invites artists
exploring these transient, postmodern spaces of everyday life,
or their counterparts—the specific, the personal, and the local—
to submit work for our annual Summer Juried Exhibition—
“Place/Non-place: Locality in the Digital Age.”
The Venice Arts Gallery focuses on photography, film,
and media arts. The exhibition is open to artists working in
photography, film, video, and digital/new media.
Winning entries will be shown at the Venice Arts Gallery
June 29–August 16, 2013, with an opening reception for the
artists on Saturday, June 29th, 5-8pm. Regional, national, and
international entries are accepted. There is no fee for entry.
DEADLINE FOR ENTRY:
Entries must be received by: 6pm on Monday, June 10, 2013
NOTIFICATION: June 14, 2013
EXHIBITION DATES: June 29–August 16, 2013
OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, June 29, 2013, 5-8pm
