Opportunity Description

International Deadline: February 23, 2020 – Atlanta Photography Group (APG) invites photographers worldwide to enter images using any photographic process for our upcoming juried exhibition, “Portfolio 2020”. This exhibition features strong, cohesive bodies of work.

The High Museum of Art is home to the most significant photography program in the American Southeast. The Museum began acquiring photographs in the early 1970s, making it one of the earliest American art museums to commit to collecting the medium. Kennel will oversee the photography department, including related exhibitions and programs, as well as its collection of more than 7,000 works spanning the 1840s to the present. With strengths in American modernist and documentary traditions from the mid-20th century and a robust commitment to contemporary practice, the photography collection features a strong base of pictures related to the American South, which are situated within a global context that is both regionally relevant and internationally significant.

The Juror for “Portfolio 2020” is Dr. Sarah Kennel, Photography Curator for the High Museum of Art, in Atlanta, GA. Ms. Kennel will select one body of work from up to 8 artists for exhibition.

All the artists selected for the exhibition will be eligible for the 2019 APG/ Museum Purchase Award of $2500. Each year, a museum curator reviews the exhibition and selects works from one artist for the Museum’s permanent collection. APG purchases the work and donates the pieces to the museum. The Portfolio 2020 purchase award is slated for the High Museum of Art.
