Calls For Entry

TitleBreak a Leg: Performance-based & Constructed Imagery

PHOTO-EMPHASIS is pleased to announce Break a Leg: Performance-based and Constructed Imagery, our fourth juried exhibition.

We’re looking for fresh, current, and diverse work by emerging and established artists. From self-portraiture and staged portraiture of others, to the construction of spaces, places, and environments; from the fabrication of still-lives and photographs-as-object, to the performance of truth or fiction for the camera; show us your best work intentionally shaped, altered, or directed by your hand and vision.

Break a Leg: Performance-based and Constructed Imagery, juried by Rebecca Drolen, will consist of an online exhibition hosted here on the PHOTO-EMPHASIS website, as well as a physical exhibition at sUgAR Gallery at the University of Arkansas.
