Application Deadline for Photo Independent is Approaching...
Photo Independent Fair | April 29-May 1, 2016 | Raleigh Studios, Hollywood
The Lucie Foundation is a proud partner of Photo Independent, which is seeking independent photographers and Photobook makers to exhibit their work April 29 to May 1, 2016.
Are you interested in building your career by getting in front of the right audience? In the past, galleries played an important role in representing and nurturing artists. However, that system can no longer support the amount of good artists who seek representation today, or who are working in unconventional media and forms. Through Photo Independent, artists can directly present and discuss their work with curators, gallery directors, dealers, collectors, editors, publishers, writers, educators, and cultural organizations, those who seek to find, invest in, promote and support the finest established, emerging and undiscovered artistic talent available today.
Photo Independent provides artists a venue to showcase their work in a professional art fair environment, the same way galleries do in art fairs such as Paris Photo and AIPAD. Through Photo Independent, artists can directly present and discuss their work with curators, gallery directors, dealers, collectors, editors and publishers ‚Äî who seek to meet, buy and collect art directly from the very best established, emerging and undiscovered artists today.
Since launching in 2014, Photo Independent has become THE art fair for photographers. As previous exhibitor Jessie Chaney says, ‚ÄúThe opportunity to exhibit at Photo Independent was a fantastic experience, for both my professional and personal photography career. Having my own booth was a great way to curate my own body of work, and also have the space to show it all together. The intimacy of the fair allowed me to interact with curators, professionals, artists and viewers in a personal setting that created lasting contacts and connections. I strongly recommend it to other artists looking to get their work shown."
Photo Independent is now accepting submissions from photographers worldwide. To guarantee the highest criteria of excellence, participants are selected by a diverse jury of knowledgeable arts professionals who will review all submissions.Artists will be able to select from different packages starting at $975.
