AMT Social Justice Award | Due May 4th, 2023

AMT Social Justice Award

The School of Art, Media & Technology (AMT) at Parsons is pleased to announce the AMT Student Social Justice Award. This award recognizes students’ commitments to actively and critically explore and hold themselves accountable to the values outlined in the following AMT Equity, Inclusion and Social Justice (EISJ) statement:

As students, artists, designers, educators, and cultural producers, we must acknowledge the lineages of white supremacy, racial discrimination, and other forms of systemic oppression that exist within our society in the U.S. and abroad. In the School of Art, Media & Technology (AMT), we are committed to creating a more inclusive, equitable and anti-racist community. We aim to support and advocate for the needs of all AMT students, staff and faculty across all identities of race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, age, religion, culture, citizenship, or socio-economic status. We will stand in solidarity with marginalized communities who have been historically excluded from institutions, including Black, Indigenous, Latinx, AAPI (Asian, Asian American and Pacific Islander), People of Color, Queer, and Trans folks, and aim to center their narratives and practices within our learning environment. We recognize the limitations of language that can’t envelop the breadth of all intersectional identities, and as such, we are committed to advancing equity, respect, and thoughtfulness within our teaching pedagogy, curriculum, classrooms and across AMT.

The selected student award recipients will receive an award of $250 and their work will be entered into a new Parsons AMT Social Justice student work archive.  Award recipients will be notified before May 19 and will receive their award by July.  All submissions will be included in the AMT Social Justice Student Award Archive.

This award has been created by a group of part-time and full-time faculty on the AMT School Curriculum Committee, as part of their mission to ensure that our school’s commitment to equity, inclusion and social justice is an active one.  As part of the ongoing commitment by faculty to deepen our commitment and ability to teach with anti-oppression and social justice frameworks, this award aims to both celebrate students’ commitments while building an archive that faculty across the School of Art, Media and Technology at Parsons can use as a tool to explore how students are engaging with AMT’s stated EISJ values.

Geste Paris Open Call Exhibition Submission Binary / Non-Binary October 19th Deadline

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     


Curators for Binary / Non-Binary are Shiva Lynn Burgos(US/France), Georg Bak(Switzerland) and Alisa Phommaxahay(France/Laos). The International Jury includes Raina Lampkins-Fielder (museum curator and multimedia artist), Marc Lenot (mathematician, economist and art critic), Brandei Estes(Head of Photographs at Sotheby’s London), Robin Hanson (author professor and researcher: The Future of Humanity Institute of Oxford University, A.I. programmer NASA), Dominic Palfreyman (financier, art philanthropist and collector), Jason Bailey (blockchain, provenance, and digital art expert, creator of artnome.com) and ORLAN (artist) as honorable artist counselor to the jury.

The exhibition will include such notable artists as Constantin Brancusi, Frederick Sommer, Pierre Molinier, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Ned & Shiva Productions, Francis Ruyter, Olaf Nicolai, Ghost of a Dream, Zean Cabangis, CJ Heyliger, Susan Morris, Nicolas Schöffer, Hannibal Volkoff, Samra Habib, Quentin Houdas, Gianfranco Caravaggi, Martin Déselets, Elger Esser

If you are interested in submitting work that is relevant to the theme, please email Vida and Alex your files (can be 5-12 single images or a body of work) at 300 dpi to isophotoeditor@gmail.com along with an artist statement.
The deadline to submit is February 15th

Call for Entries: Curatorial Prize at Blue Sky Gallery

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.”

Financial Considerations

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 exhibitions@blueskygallery.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:

  1. Curatorial statement and vision for the Curatorial Prize, including estimated costs.
  2. Professional resume/CV, including a link to your website if applicable.
  3. Examples of past curatorial work, including images and critical reviews.
  4. Samples of work the artists you have chosen for your exhibition (and/or links to the websites of the work selected).
  5. A writing sample of previous curatorial statements or published writing.


For questions, please email exhibitions@blueskygallery.org. Please note that Blue Sky is unable to give feedback on your application or the application process.

NYC Artist Seeking Photo Intern

Internship with Simen Johan
Depending on skill level and area of interests student will work directly with the artist, assisting with basic Photoshop, online research, photoshoots and sculpture making.
This position is unpaid, but lunch is provided.  1 day per week, 10-6PM or 11-7PM in Gownus, Brooklyn. Near F, G, & R trains. Send resume and letter of interest to mail@simenjohan.com
About the Artist:
Simen Johan blends traditional and digital techniques to create lush photography that paradoxically seem to be both direct observation and and fabrication. In his own words: “I strive to create tension and confuse the boundaries between opposing forces, such as beauty and brutality…or the familiar and the otherworldly, the natural and the artificial, the amusing and the eerie. I often feel like I am attempting to reconcile the irreconcilable as I explore the paradoxical nature of existence.” Simen was born in Norway and moved to New York City to study visual arts and photography. Johan received the New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in 2002, the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant in 2009 and the George A. and Eliza Gardner Howard Foundation Grant for Photography in 2012. Johan has been represented by the Yossi Milo Gallery since 2000.

Umbrella Arts Call for Entries

FAMILY, Jodphur India ©Harvey Stein 2013

FAMILY, Jodphur India ©Harvey Stein 2013

Umbrella Arts

“We are seeking photographs of FAMILY. Photographs that are a bit unusual and out of the ordinary, not the conventionally nice or cute images that are often seen.  Your photographs can be amusing, interesting, frank and biting.

Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines FAMILY as a group of people who are related to each other. This is fine with us but we’d like to expand the definition beyond what we are born into. Let’s include those who we choose to “adopt” as a family, like a close group of friends; a group of people united by certain convictions and a common affiliation, and a group of things related by common characteristics, as the woodwind family of musical instruments, for instance. A group of circus performers, a band of brothers, a theater group, or even the Mafia.

The tone can convey an appreciation of the joys and difficulties experienced by FAMILY in the essentially absurd predicament of getting along and living.  FAMILIES pictured in environments from homes to city streets to the ends of the earth are all being sought.

The exhibition is open to all photographers working in color, black & white, film, digital, and beyond, etc.   Any format, any camera, any style is acceptable.”

ENTRY DEADLINE: December 5, 2016
