October 2012, Cincinnati: FotoFocus Month of Photography

FotoFocus Cincinnati
October 2012
30+ Days | 50+ Venues | 500+ Artists

The exhibition openings, lectures, and book signings are too great to re-list in this blog.  To see the activities planned in Cincinnati and some in Dayton throughout the month of October, please visit their website: fotofocuscincinnati.org.

“FotoFocus, a nonprofit arts organization, champions the ubiquity of photography and its important role in contemporary culture. FotoFocus recaptures the spirit of Cincinnati’s legacy as an epicenter of art production and creative exchange, and seeks to revitalize that spirit for the 21st century. Acting as a catalyst for institutional collaboration and community engagement, FotoFocus organizes a month-long biennial celebration spotlighting independently programmed exhibitions of historical and contemporary photography and lens-based art.

Launching in October 2012, with many of the showcased exhibitions continuing beyond, the FotoFocus biennial presents an unprecedented opportunity to learn about and experience the diverse currents of photography. FotoFocus brings together museums, galleries, and universities showcasing world-renowned artists and national and regional standouts. Pop-up venues, community art centers, and other grass roots organizations explore current trends in photography with exhibitions featuring the work of emerging talents and students.”

Deadline April 1st: FotoFest 2012 Biennial Participating Spaces Submissions

FotoFest 2012 Biennial
Submission Deadline:  Friday, April 1, 2011 (at the FotoFest office)

From FotoFest’s submissions page:

“FotoFest’s own exhibition will focus on Contemporary Russian Photography: Post World War II Avant-garde Photography to the Present.  These exhibitions will show work by Russian photographers working in Russia.  The theme will be explored through five photography, video and multi-media exhibitions of work by contemporary Russian artists.  FotoFest’s Creative Directors are collaborating with two Russian curators on these exhibitions.

In addition to FotoFest’s own exhibitions, numerous Participating Spaces in the Biennial look at work that artists send to FotoFest for consideration.  Participating Spaces are the over 100 galleries, non-profit spaces, and commercial venues in the Houston area that choose to exhibit photography during the FotoFest Biennial alongside FotoFest’s own exhibitions.

These spaces have the option of 1) following FotoFest’s focus which in 2012, can include work about Contemporary Russia by artists of any nationality, or 2) presenting work unrelated to FotoFest’s theme.  Submissions approved by the Art Board are posted on the submission web page for Participating Spaces to view and select for possible exhibition.”
