Photographic Resource Center | Endicott College School of Visual and Performing Arts
Call for Entries: Unconventional Inventions: Innovative, Unusual and Alternative Approaches to Photography
Deadline: Monday, December 3, 2012

“The Photographic Resource Center at Boston University (PRC) is partnering with Endicott College School of Visual and Performing Arts in this exciting call for entries and exhibition. We seek submissions from photographers and other artists who are working in or with photography while also expanding upon the expressive abilities of the medium. The seven-week exhibition will be held at Endicott College’s Carol Grillo Gallery in the Walter J. Manninen Center for the Arts March 11 – April 26, 2013. The opening reception will be Thursday, March 14, 5:00 – 7:00 pm. Six to eight photographers will be selected from the entries by esteemed jurors from the Boston photography community.

This riveting show will feature artists who take unconventional and innovative approaches to photography by pushing the boundaries of the medium, using alternative or new processes and techniques, integrating photography with other arts or new technologies, or experimenting with scale or frame. We are open to all work considered “outside the box” as Unconventional Inventions will celebrate photography’s wonderful eccentricities.
