Call for Submissions Round Hole Square Peg 4

Round Hole Square PegLos Angeles, California, United States

Opportunity Description

International Deadline: December 31, 2019 – Round Hole Square Peg 4 is an open call, juried photography competition conceived with the intent to question and acquire a fresh LGBTQ visual culture for the 21st century.

Be on the vanguard. Help create a new wave of queer art and soul. As Stonewall 50 passes, LGBTQ persecution intensifies all over the world. Through art exhibitions, queer people shout about love, visibility, and activism.

JURY
Claudia Bartlett, director of Photo LA and Chris Davies, publisher of Fabrik Magazine and director of Fabrik Projects Gallery will be selecting the artists in the competition for two special recognition awards… see bio’s.

EXHIBITIONS & AWARDS
35 photographers will be selected by a panel of five notable LGBTQ gallerists and the Director of Photo LA. The exhibition will debut at PHOTO LA 2020 January 30 – February 2, 2020, then move to the City of West Hollywood’s Plummer Park Gallery for an extended museum-like run from February 8 – March 4, 2020. All work at both venues is for sale.

Past press coverage has included Huffington Post, Out, Advocate, Complex Style, Intomore, German TV and Dutch print news. This is the Year of the Queer and with it comes a major increase of queer cultural coverage. In 2020 we will be targeting the New York Times and other mainstream media for press coverage, as well as all the queer venues that have covered us in the past.

After PHOTO LA, the show moves to the City of West Hollywood’s Plummer Park Gallery for a longer museum-like run from February 8-March 4, 2020, with a special opening and closing night reception.
