Compete PH21 Gallery CFE: Portraits Beyond Faces

PH21 Gallery Budapest, Budapest, Hungary

PH21 Gallery

Opportunity Description

International Deadline: July 22, 2024 PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for our group exhibition themed Portraits Beyond Faces.

Portraiture emerged as one of the most prominent genres of depictive media early in the history of the visual arts; tacit or explicit rules, conventions and cultural expectations have always influenced the ways in which artists approached the genre. Photography is no exception. Numerous different and characteristic styles of portraiture emerged throughout the history of the medium. We usually assume that faces are necessary components of portraiture; we may, however, learn just as much about the character, the personality of a person by looking at images that depict other parts of their bodies, show us the objects or places associated with them. Not focusing on the face may open up a new dimension of interpretation. Our Portraits Beyond Faces exhibition is dedicated to this challenging divergence from the more conventional approaches to the genre.

Exhibition dates: September 21 – October 15, 2024.
