Deadline: 17 September 2023. The nude form has been portrayed in art throughout history, from the classical era to the enlightenment and the modern era. The nude figure in western art–specifically in photography–has expressed ideals of female and male beauty along with other human qualities including life, energy, and an array of complicated human emotions.
Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that explore the nude in any of its varied styles including figure studies, environmental nudes and implied nudes–just to name a few of the many iterations of this genre. All capture types, genres, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission. Curated by Praxis Directors. Exhibition dates: Oct. 21–Nov 4., 2023
Up to 37 images will be selected by the curators for exhibition at Praxis Gallery. A Directors’ Choice and five Honorable Mentions will be awarded and featured in the exhibition, the printed show catalog, and the online exhibit gallery. Directors’ Choice will receive free entry into three juried calls for entry of their choice and a complimentary exhibit book.
