Photobase: Call for Artists


The North Vancouver Community Arts Council is seeking photographic artists for a themed exhibition called Photobase at CityScape Community Art Space. Photobase is a Selected Exhibition Program for the 2018 Capture Photography Festival.

The exhibition will be held at CityScape Community Art Space March 16 – April 21, 2018, with an opening reception on Thursday, March 15, 7-9pm. We are calling artists who use family photographs as the groundwork for their practice. A photograph can be read as truth or a reflection of a truth. The artist occupies the space between the family photograph and the meaning it conveys to the public world. There are many kinds of families that can be represented in this exhibition. There are families we are born into, families we create, families from abroad, friends who are more like family, and people we choose to call family. The word family is inclusive to the stories of the people who mean something in your life and the stories you want to share!

Deadline to submit is Saturday, January 20, 2018.
