Corpus: Exploring the Photograph as Object / Calls & Submissions

July 29, 2024

Organization Name: Manifest Creative Research Gallery and Drawing Center

Organization Location: Cincinnati, OH

Type: Calls & Submissions

Fee: $45


The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists and designers to submit original works that explore the photograph as an object. Open to all traditional and non-traditional photographic and light-based genre and media.

Not so many years ago, we stopped touching photographs. While print media and brick-and-mortar galleries exist, our common, everyday experience with the photograph has drastically shifted from the handling of 4” x 6” prints from the drugstore to scrolling through brilliant digital images shining out from our screens.

CORPUS calls to artists for photographic-based works that re-engage the body, acknowledge their place in the physical world, and explore the impacts of choice of surface, volume, texture, material, and presentation methods on the experience of the image itself—the spirit in the body of the art. It aims to reveal the literal backstory, or other sides of what has become a sideless visual phenomenon, giving the photo back its body. This exhibit is support by FotoFocus as a participating venue project of the 2024 FotoFocus Biennial.

Fee is for 3 submissions; $5 per each additional entry.

Includes exhibitor honorarium of $50 for each exhibiting artist, and new Grand Jury Award of $1,000 for one jury-selected work from among the exhibits on view.
