“This exhibition addresses photography’s influential role in contemporary art through a selection of recent major acquisitions, primarily multipart and serial works. Presented at MoMA for the first time, these works by 19 artists are grounded in diverse photographic traditions, suggesting the creative fertility of the medium from 1960 to today. They range from postwar experiments with darkroom processes (such as photograms and photomontages), to 1970s feminist performances conceived for the camera, to political and documentary engagements with labor history and globalization in the 1980s and 1990s, to forms of archival and historical reconstitution made since 2000. The international, cross-generational group of artists includes Yto Barrada, Phil Collins,* Liz Deschenes, Stan Douglas,* VALIE EXPORT, Robert Frank, Paul Graham, Leslie Hewitt,* Birgit Jürgenssen, Jürgen Klauke, Běla Kolářová, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Dóra Maurer, Oscar Muñoz, Mariah Robertson, Allan Sekula, Stephen Shore, Taryn Simon,* and Hank Willis Thomas.*
*Works by these artists will be on view beginning August 23, 2013.
Galleries 1–4 open May 10; gallery 5 opens August 23.”
“En Foco’s Touring Gallery Community Exhibitions presents photographs from Pete Pin’s Cambodian Diaspora series.
Born in a Cambodian refugee camp where both parents worked in labor camps, Pin immigrated to the U.S. in 1983. Drawing from the experiences of his family as survivors of the Khmer Rouge regime (1975-1979), Pin photographs Cambodian communities throughout the United States. He documents the struggle and pain of the survivors and the direct descendants of the genocide that took millions of lives. The series is a testament to those who died, and an examination of where future generations are now. In an attempt to understand his heritage, Pin pays tribute to the lives of the survivors.
Pin states, “I have struggled for most of my life to understand the legacy of my people. They are among the most heavily traumatized people in modern memory, the human aftermath of a cultural, political, and economic revolution that killed an estimated two million, nearly a third of the entire population, within a span of four years. That tragedy casts a long shadow on the lives of Cambodians that bleeds generationally, manifesting itself across generations.”
Te exhibition will be up until July 19, 2013.

Opening Reception for Life’s a Beach by Martin Parr
Wednesday, May 15, 2013, 7:00-9:00 pm
“Join Aperture and Martin Parr for the opening reception for Life’s a Beach, featuring the best selections from Parr’s beach photography, presented in conjunction with the May release of the beach-bag-size edition of Life’s a Beach. Parr has been photographing beaches for thirty years, documenting all aspects of them, including close-ups of sunbathers, rambunctious swimmers caught mid-plunge, and the eternal sandy picnic underway. This selection brings to the fore Parr’s engagement with a cherished subject matter—that rare public space in which general absurdities and local quirks seamlessly fuse together.”

The SUMMER SHOW Project
Deadline: Monday, May 12, 2013
Apply by April 28th for a reduced submission fee of $25, after April 28th the fee is $35.
“The Summer Show Project offers the unique chance for artists to work directly with FOLEYgallery. The exhibition will feature one artist that works with photography and one artist that makes works on paper. The Summer Show Project is open to all artists world wide.
This is the fourth year for The Summer Show Project. We invite you to submit your work to participate in this unique opportunity and share the experience of exposure, guidance, feedback, community, recognition and support. This initiative will provide an opportunity for emerging or under represented artists to have their work seen, recognized and reviewed in a professional gallery setting.
Upon acceptance, you will work on your own and with the guidance of gallery owner Michael Foley to create a well curated two person exhibition.
The SUMMER SHOW project only accepts applications online.
We ask that you have 3 images you are ready to apply with. Each must be no wider than 1000 pixels or no more than 700 pixels in height. Resolution must be 72 dpi. Our only suggestion is to choose three images that show some consistency while staying true to the type of work you are most interested in. At this point, the work will not be chosen based on theme or style. Whether you consider yourself a journalist, a collage artist or whatever, it just doesn’t matter.
You will also be asked to submit a statement about your work in 100 words or less. That’s right, 100 words. A caption or title that summarizes the work would be a good way to start off.
Please do not contact the judges directly in any fashion. This is a blind jury. The curators will not be aware of the names attached to the entries during review. At the conclusion of the selection process, all curators will then be given the names of the artists who submitted work so that they might follow up with them directly.
We do not recommend you try to fit your submission into what you might think the gallery is looking for.
So, submit what is true for you, regardless of who will be viewing it.”

“ArtBridge is currently accepting submissions for Another New York, a photography-based public exhibition that invites Brooklyn-based photographers to submit small series’ of works in response to the project brief below. All works selected for exhibition will be exhibited large-scale* (up to 16 feet high) at the Atlantic Yards development in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, beginning in July of 2013.
New York City is one of the most heavily photographed cities in the world. From tourist snapshots of Times Square, too-often derivative street photography and Instagram reaching limitless heights, many photographers have described today’s NYC as a dying photographic vantage point with nothing new to say. This outdoor exhibition, Another New York looks to change this pessimism by presenting photography that captures New York City with a new and unexpected eye. Scheduled to be unveiled in Summer 2013 on the construction fencing and scaffolding at the site of the Barclays Center*, in Brooklyn, NY, this exhibition, juried and curated by Jon Feinstein and internationally-renowned Brooklyn-based artist Mickalene Thomas, challenges photographers born, living, or working in Brooklyn to help us fall in love with New York City again.
+ 5-10 images at 800 pixels on the longest side, 72dpi RGB, jpeg files no larger than 1MB and named as follows: first name_last name__ANY_number.jpg (ex. john_doe_ANY_1.jpg)
+ Brief 50-100 word bio and artist statement
+ Website link (optional)
+ Photographers must have been born, or currently live and or work in Brooklyn, NY.
Create a single zip file of the above contents, rename the file with your name (ex. john_doe.zip) and send as an attachment to: email@example.com with ANOTHER NEW YORK SUBMISSION in the subject line. Incomplete submissions will not be considered.
IMPORTANT NOTE: We ask that artists with exclusive gallery representation do not apply at this time.
*Chosen work will be enlarged to the scale of the exhibition surface and printed onto weather-proof, fade-proof vinyl material.
