GESTE Paris is committed to experimental processes and invites photo-based artworks from outside the normal bounds of photography. GESTE Paris is an annual underground exhibition of experimental photography organised Shiva Lynn Burgos. GESTE brings together vintage and contemporary works by both established and emerging artists. Like a secret speakeasy GESTE is presented in the convivial setting of a classic Parisian apartment that provides a space for reflection and dialogue. GESTE is the nexus of a private collection, artwork from leading galleries, and a selection by invited curators.
GESTE Invites submissions from artists and photographers for the open call.
Black or white, on or off, male or female, digital or analog, zero or one. A binary viewpoint divides the world cleanly and everything is in one category or the other, as two alternatives existing in opposition. The non-binary viewpoint opens the world up to a multiplicity of categories, rejecting the simplification and contrasting nature of the binary position and yet must include both the single and the infinite. How do artists exemplify these concepts today and how do they co-exist?
The world is not black and white but full of greyscale and colour and even ultra- and infra- colours beyond the range of our human eyes. Where does the spectrum lie in terms of scientifically definable code, digital geometry, astrometrics, consciousness, sexuality, spirituality, artificial intelligence and the technological singularity?
Open Call submission deadline – 19 October
Public jury selection announcement – 26 October
Exhibition opens – 5 November 2018
Further details of the Open Call are on our website

Blue Sky Gallery in Portland, OR is seeking proposals for a Curatorial Prize for a one-month long photography exhibition in May 2018.
“Founded in 1975, Blue Sky’s mission is to educate the public about photography through exhibitions, publications, and dialogue; and to further the careers and artistic development of the artists shown. Our main programming focuses on an ambitious exhibition schedule of 22 -24 photography shows each year in Blue Sky’s two galleries. Exhibitions represent a wide variety of work from local, national, and international photographers.
Our newly established Curatorial Prize provides an opportunity for curators to present an exhibition of photo-based work, along with related programming and publications at one of the nation’s most highly regarded photography galleries. The program seeks exhibitions of 2- 5 artists who use photography in traditional or experimental ways. Video/film are welcome.
Blue Sky Gallery’s ambitious exhibition schedule does naturally limit the extent of work possible (we only have 1 -2 days for installation and 1 day for de-install). Within those parameters, we commonly hang shows of approximately 20 – 30 images, generally either framed or hung with magnets. If your work is installation based, or is otherwise rigorous to install, please be sure to directly address a manageable approach to installation/de-installation within our fast-paced schedule.”
Curatorial stipend is $750. An additional total pool of up to $4,000 for artist stipends, travel/housing (artists and curator), honorariums for writing, printing, and shipping will be available. Blue Sky will work with selected curator to establish budget for programs and publications. Blue Sky can provide black frames for photography at no cost if the photos are of a standard size. Other alternates to framing include magnets or mirror clips.
Proposals are due to Blue Sky Gallery by December 8, 2017. Please submit to firstname.lastname@example.org, and be sure to put the phrase “CURATORIAL PRIZE” in the subject line. Applications will be reviewed and a curator chosen by Blue Sky’s staff and Exhibition Committee. Applications should include the following documents merged into a single PDF:
- Curatorial statement and vision for the Curatorial Prize, including estimated costs.
- Professional resume/CV, including a link to your website if applicable.
- Examples of past curatorial work, including images and critical reviews.
- Samples of work the artists you have chosen for your exhibition (and/or links to the websites of the work selected).
- A writing sample of previous curatorial statements or published writing.
For questions, please email email@example.com. Please note that Blue Sky is unable to give feedback on your application or the application process.
