Group Exhibition in Rome city, Italy. April 2023

Since the days of ancient Greece, the contemplation of the night sky has stimulated thoughts on our existence, on our being in the world and on the unknown infinity outside of it.

From Giotto to Van Gogh and even Anselm Kief in painting, from Henry Draper in the field of astrophotography to Thierry Cohen's starry skies, the history of images has expressed our relationship with the sky, and these traces through which we are able today to grasp the different interpretations it has been subject to over the centuries. A mysterious space, or according to the ancients a divine kingdom, that reminds us of our origins and our destiny.
On the historical - phenomenological level, an artistic and scientific approach, in which the two aspects are in dialogue with each other, is today increasingly prevalent in the field of research on different scientific-cultural fronts, through new technological-digital tools aimed at stimulating new ways of perceiving and experiencing reality.
For the upcoming Night Skies and Astro Imaging exhibition, curated by Loosenart, photographers, video makers and visual designers are called upon to present works corresponding to the theme.

MIMESIS

Call for Exhibition - Accepted media: Photography, Digital Visual Design, Video

Group Exhibition in Rome city, Italy. May 2023

FREE ENTRY Photographers, Visual Designers and Video Artists are invited to submit 1 up to 3 works addressing the theme.

"Mimesis", Greek word for "imitation", designates a human and animal behavior aimed at the manifestation of an aesthetic cohesion - figurative and/or behavioral - with another subject or with the environment from which, through linguistic codes, we grasp a certain degree of adhesion and participation.
Imitation and Mimicry recall instinctive behaviors that act as defense and survival mechanisms, but also respond to the desire to establish a connection and approach each other between living beings and the environment. Man, art and technology make this objective manifest, through the production of visual representations, and even through productions that recall the biological processes of the natural world, and social and psychic dynamics.
Photographers, visual designers and video artists are called to present works corresponding to the concept of "Mimesis", in its representation, documentation and reflection.

Deadline February 10th 2023 │SUBMIT HERE

THE FAMILY

Call for Exhibition - Accepted media: Photography, Digital Visual Design, Video

Group Exhibition in Rome, Italy. July 2023

FREE ENTRY Photographers, Visual Designers and Video Artists are invited to submit 1 up to 3 works addressing the theme.

The collection of the works on display will expose the meaning of the term "Family", through stories and thoughts. Such a broad topic, "Family", grants the authors multiple approaches within the experiential and autobiographical sphere - which makes the diaristic component implicit - but also documentary and conceptual, as the result of a reflection on the meaning of the "Family" in the modern age.
"Family" is understood as a social nucleus made up of several individuals who live and share domestic environments, linked together by kinship and/or by an emotional relationship. The selected works will answer questions such as "What are families nowadays?", "How do traditions and cultures affect our way of living them, in them and with them?", "What testimonies do we have of new ways of understanding the family?" - a reference to immigrant individuals who create new social and sharing groups and the request by homosexual women and men who want the right to create their own family recognized.
History of Art offers a further starting point to reflect from, and it concerns a human behavior made manifest through the pictorial genre of the portrait: to remember oneself by becoming testimony and historical root for his descendants, a behavior that is followed through photography with the exposition in the frame or the family album.

Deadline April 16th 2023 │SUBMIT HERE

MIGRATIONS AND THE SHIFTING BORDERS

Call for Exhibition - Accepted media: Photography, Digital Visual Design, Video

Group Exhibition in Rome city, Italy. January 2023

FREE ENTRY Photographers, Visual Designers and Video Artists are invited to submit 1 up to 3 works addressing the theme.

The current events that provoke mass migration, as shown by the war in Ukraine, or those involving millions of people driven by hunger or, as is also happening in more developed countries, driven by the search for working opportunities, well testify such a human behavior inherent in its own nature, a behavior that explicits the need and urgency of a universal recognition of a right which is still too often opposed today by a widespread cultural xenophobia.
Mobility, transition and structural collapse of barriers, these are perhaps some of the presuppositions that allow a contact, an exchange, an enrichment and an evolution of the human species.
Through this call, the field of visual arts proposes itself as a place in which testimony and manifestation of ideas, concepts and visions on the theme of migration and geo-political borders are given.

Deadline October 7th 2022 │Expired

Call for Exhibition - Accepted media: Photography, Digital Visual Design, Video

Group Exhibition in Rome city, Italy. December 2022

FREE ENTRY Photographers, Visual Designers and Video Artists are invited to submit 1 up to 3 works addressing the theme.

What is progress? On what ethical and moral basis does man undertake the evolutionary path that determines his being in the world, his relationship with the environment and with his fellow men? On what foundations and through what purposes does man undertake his scientific research? What are the outcomes and testimonies that have contributed to a qualitative improvement in human life? What are the outcomes and testimonies of the errors committed, and that man continues to commit?
Although in a continuous re-evaluation and alteration of behavioral orientation, and in response to his own needs and necessities, man creates that linear evolutionary path that leaves traces of himself and from which it is possible to detect the most intrinsic nature of him.
This call asks these and further questions. These are open questions to which authors engaged in the various digital media respond by addressing the issue in various humanistic and scientific areas.

Deadline September 7th 2022 │Expired

Paradigm of modernity, since the first half of the 20th century, photography has become a means through which authors such as Florence Henri, Man Ray, László Moholy-Nagy, and many others, offer new visions of reality: all this is done by observing, analyzing and asking questions on several levels, such as a scientific, cultural, and social one, regarding objects / subjects, but also regarding the role and the deepest meaning of the photographic act.
Thanks to the advent of the digital world, its applications and its operational transversality, new techniques, procedures and conceptual approaches to the "writing of light" are today in continuous evolution. Contemporary experimental photography proposes new languages and new aesthetics concerning the experience of man in the relationship with the environment and its perception.
