Call for Submissions Online & Rome Exhibitions, Publications

LoosenArtRoma, Lazio, Italy

Opportunity Description

International Deadline: July 7; August 7; September 7; October 7, 2020 – LoosenArt announces a call for entries for its upcoming online and group exhibitions in Rome, Italy:


THE PERFORMER | Call for Exhibition – July 7, 2020
Photographers and Visual Designers are invited to submit 1 to 3 works addressing the theme.

Accepted media: Photography, Digital Graphic, Digital Visual Design.

In the next exhibition the figure of the performer will be our gaze’s protagonist .
The gathered works will once again make explicit the role of the photographic medium, already highlighted with the experiences of the performing arts since the 1960s, in the process of creation and diffusion, as well as documentation, analysis and interpretation of the performative act.

The key element is the “gesture”, as in any type of performative performance: artistic, theatrical, choreographic, musical, etc., understood as a set of signs of a corporeal and primitive language, as cultural codes that concern behavior, through which the performer seeks contact, involvement and often active participation.

The figure of the performer is thus recalled as the author of the artistic performance but also of the athletic one, where aesthetics, balance of form, harmony of gesture become visual stimuli that involves the emotional sphere of the observer.

Take part in the Group Exhibition in Rome, Italy – October 2020.


THE MAN AND THE MACHINE | Call for Exhibition – August 7, 2020
This call invites photographers and visual designers to propose works capable of offering a vision of the current historical and social context and responding to the theme of the relationship between man and machine

Since the first complex and automated technological inventions (starting from the experimental science of the sixteenth century up to the current electronic and digital machines) the relationship between man and machine has characterized every evolutionary development of civilization.

Each new invention indelibly marks not only the course of technical development, but also the same vision of the world of man. A distinctive sign in the man-machine relationship is precisely the determined will of the individual and his mental structure to accept the instant modification of his habits by virtue of a new technological discovery. Today the dependence on intelligent machines is made manifest in every field concerning human activity. Especially since the 19th century, art has represented an important cultural field through which we may reflect on the relationship between man and machine, starting from the futurist experiences in the pictorial field, passing through the film productions of Fritz Lang with Metropolis and Ridley Scott with Blade Runner, up to the contemporary images of Thomas Struth in the photographic field.

Accepted media: Photography, Digital Graphic, Digital Visual Design.

Group Exhibition in Rome, Italy – November 2020.


DIARIES | Call for Exhibition – September 7, 2020
This call, following the path of a photographic genre developed from the experience of artists such as Nan Goldin, Wolfgang Tillmans, Boris Mikhailov, will collect photographic shots capable of expressing everyday life, such as the private and intimate one of the relationships between who describes and what and/or who is described.

Diaristic photography is an approach to photography that allows you to grasp first-hand aspects of an experience through which you may create personal memories for a diary or family album. Nowadays it is made even more shareable thanks to social media platforms on the web, as well as those useful for therapeutic use: photography used to tell about yourself, as a liberating act that allows the manifestation of a condition and a first step towards awareness.

Accepted media: Photography.

Group Exhibition in Rome, Italy. December 2020


POST – INDUSTRIALISM | Call for Exhibition – October 7, 2020
Currently, we are living in a post-industrial society, which is, by definition, “a society marked by a transition from a manufacturing-based economy to a service-based economy”. So what happened to the urban/suburban factories populating the industrial landscape?

The main focus, here, is centred on pictures showing the decadence of industrial buildings as well as renewed factories, currently fulfilling a different function (museum, art gallery, shop…).

Accepted media: Photography, Digital Graphic, Digital Visual Design.

Group Exhibition in Rome or Milan city, Italy. January 2021.

Due to this reason LoosenArt supports some organizations engaged in the field of defense of human rights. LoosenArt contribute to organizations engaged in the field of human rights. 50% of the LoosenArt Gallery’s incomes – 18% from full amount – will be devolved to such purpose.
