Filter Photo | Re/member/construct: Open Call for Photo-Based Work

Filter Photo is pleased to announce an open call for photography-based work. Re/member/construct will be juried by Lisa Volpe, Associate Curator, Photography at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
Artists selected for the exhibition will be included in Filter Photo’s inaugural publication, Re/member/construct, and will receive a complimentary copy of the publication. Additionally, a Juror’s Choice award of $500 will be awarded and includes an extended portfolio in the accompanying exhibition publication.
Re/member/construct will have a public reception concurrent with our other open call, we like small things v.2, on September 28th, 6 – 9 pm during the 2018 Filter Photo Festival. The exhibition will be held at Filter Space in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood.
Re/member/construct refers to the quality of a photograph to simultaneously stop time and infuse form, construct memory, and fuel nostalgia.  It is about both archive and fabrication, index and icon, an open testament to the way a photograph functions in our contemporary world as both a document and a storyteller. For this call for work, juror Lisa Volpe will consider all types of photo-based imagery that explores the photographic possibilities of Re/member/construct.
