Call for Entries: Tough Turf: New Directions in Street Photography
Deadline: October 7, 2013, Midnight

“For the past 8 years, Humble Arts Foundation has been championing what’s “new” in Art Photography. At times rivaling commercial aspirations, we’re interested in work that makes us twitch and keeps us excited about the future of Photography.

For the launch of our new site and group show 39, we’re producing an online exhibition of street photography made since 2000 that encourages us to rethink the genre entirely. How have today’s photographers brought the traditions of Cartier Bresson, Diane Arbus, Helen Levitt and countless others into the 21st Century? Have smart-phones, instagram and digital technology changed the nature of the “Decisive Moment?”

Curated by Jon Feinstein & Amani Olu

October 25 & 26, NYC: The Creative Time Summit “Art, Place & Dislocation in the 21st Century City”

The Creative Time Summit 2013
Art, Place & Dislocation in the 21st Century City
Friday & Saturday, October 25 & 26, 2013

“The 2013 Creative Time Summit sets its sights on the fact that culture, for good or bad, is an active ingredient in the construction and shaping of the contemporary city. Tapping into widespread debate on this issue, this year’s Summit provides a global platform for consideration of the trials, tribulations, artistic practices, campaigns, theories, and practicalities that accompany this phenomenon. As the active role of culture in the city gains traction not only with artists but also with architects, city planners, philanthropists, and developers—from eye-popping monumental sculpture, to arts districts, to battles over eviction and squatting—this year’s Summit provides a timely opportunity to debate and consider a variety of artistic approaches to this contemporary condition.”  more»
