Context 2018

Friday, Mar 16 – Apr 28, 2018 9 – 10 pm

March 16th, 6 – 9 pm – Artists’ Reception and Exhibition Opening

Filter Photo is pleased to announce Context 2018, our annual spring open call for lens-based work.

This year’s exhibition was juried by April M. Watson, Curator of Photography at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and features the work of 32 artists. Though the theme of the exhibition is open-ended, juror April M. Watson states, “my subjective proclivities for work that uses the medium to challenge mundane modes of perception are reflected in my final selections. The themes of memory—personal and collective—also weave through these works, though I avoided any stringent thematic underpinning, for fear such an approach would omit too many fascinating works.”  A juror’s choice award and an honorable mention will be awarded during the opening reception.
