“The PRC’s esteemed annual juried exhibition, Exposure, honors emerging photographers from across North America by providing a venue to celebrate their work in a group show. Since its inception in 1996, over 300 photographers have displayed their images on the PRC’s gallery walls. Each year, a respected member of the New England art community — from curators to gallerists to photo editors — is asked to select ten to fifteen standout artists from a pool of several hundred. Each artist then shows five to ten photographs, adding up to a truly interesting exhibit each year.
In order to submit, photographers must be members of the PRC and cannot have shown work here within the past five years.
For the last decade Karen Haas has served as the Lane Curator of Photographs at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, where she is responsible for a large collection of photographs by American modernists such as Charles Sheeler, Edward Weston, Ansel Adams, and Imogen Cunningham. The Lane Collection, which has recently been given to the Museum, numbers more than 6,000 prints and ranges across the entire history of western photography from William Henry Fox Talbot to the Starn twins. Before coming to the MFA, Haas held various curatorial positions in Boston-area museums and private collections, including the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, the Boston University Art Gallery, and the Addison Gallery of American Art in Andover. She holds a BA in Art History from Connecticut College; received her MA in the History of Photography at Boston University; and taught the history of photography at both Boston University and Boston College.
Exposure is the PRC’s annual juried exhibition, open to emerging photographers across North America and beyond. Juror Karen Haas will select work by eight contemporary photographers to comprise the eighteenth iteration of this show.”
