Portfolio Showcase 2013
Deadline: May 23
Exhibition: July 3 - 27
Opening Reception: July 5
Every photograph tells a story. When part of a body of work, the photograph takes on a new meaning, becoming part of a bigger and more complete narrative. A portfolio allows the photographer to explore the complexities of their subject, providing context that gives it richness and meaning greater than the sum of its parts. The Kiernan Gallery is pleased to announce its second annual portfolio showcase, juried by renowned photography critic Vicki Goldberg. For this exhibition, four photographers will be selected to show their complete bodies of work.
- All photographs and artist statements will be reproduced in an exhibition catalogue.
- All exhibiting photographers will be featured on The Kiernan Gallery’s blog and website.
- An electronic show card will be designed and distributed by The Kiernan Gallery for each exhibiting artist.
- Submit a body of 10-15 images
- Submit a written statement about the work (not more than one page)
- Artists should be prepared to ship or deliver their work (ready to hang) to the gallery if selected.
All photographic media are encouraged.
About the Juror
Vicki Goldberg, one of the leading voices in the field of photography criticism, wrote about photography for the New York Times for thirteen years and has published several books and the texts for more than twenty-five photographic monographs. One review of her latest book, The White House: The President's Home in Photographs and History, called it "a lovely way to invite people who are a little wobbly on their White House and presidential history to shore up some of their weaknesses, while learning a thing or two about how the medium of photography has shaped our identity and national perspective." Her books The Power of Photography: How Photographs Changed Our Lives and Margaret Bourke-White: A Biography were each named one of the Best Books of the Year by the American Library Association, and the anthology she edited, Photography in Print: Writings from 1816 to the Present, was cited in the Wall Street Journal in 2006 as one of the five best books ever written on photography. She has received numerous awards for writing, including the International Center of Photography's Infinity Award, the Royal Society's Dudley Johnston Award, and the Long Chen Cup (China). Ms. Goldberg, who has taught courses at the Institute of Fine Arts in New York, the Centro de la Imagen in Mexico City, the Rhode Island School of Design and the Art Institute of Boston, lectures internationally and writes on photography for various magazines.
