Selfies and the New Photography
50 Artists/50 Selfies
Curated by Patrick Lichty
 
Call for Photos/Essays
Whether it is for an avatar for Facebook, self-portraits for online dating,
or endless personal self-documentation for social media, the selfie (cell
phone photo shot either through the back camera or via a mirror) is the
emblematic form of photography in online culture.  Due to its ubiquity in
media culture, one asks what its social function resides and how that shapes
the representation of the ³public face² as media stream.  Invited artists
include Vagner Whitehead, Joe DeLappe, and Bibbe Hansen.

Selfies and the New Photography will consist of 50 artists from around the
world along with an interpretation of their selfie.
 
CALL FOR WORK/ESSAYS
Selfies and the New Photography will consist of an online site and on-demand
full-color catalogue, where proceeds will be given to the Autism Society.
 
ARTISTS
Please submit a best possible resolution image of your selfie, plus a
100-word description of your selfie or how you feel the selfie represents
society or how we view ourselves.
 
Artists will be offered an at-cost access to the POD site for the catalogue.

DEADLINE:
January 15, 2014, firm.

CRITICAL ESSAYS
Selfies and the New Photography invites scholars in Photography and New
Media to inquire about inclusion in the catalogue.  Essays should be
1250-4000+ words in length, and images are invited.
 
Intellectual Property Disclaimer:
By entering this exhibition, the artists and scholars accept to give
reproduction rights as necessary for the production and promotion of the
exhibition. A majority of the proceeds will be given to the charity listed.
 
Sponsorship:
Selfies and the New Photography is made possible by Intelligent Agent, a New
Media service organization based in New York City.
