THE CONTEMPORARY NUDE

The fine art nude has been a celebrated subject of photography since the beginning and played an important role in establishing photography as a fine art medium. Early on, both in history and most photographers experience, the nude has been featured in a classical pose and setting, maturing to illustrating the human body as a sculptural abstraction, and with some pushing boundaries.

 

With the 21st century flooding us, the photographer and the viewer, with images of the nude in every form of media, it has become more difficult for the fine art nude photographer to make a statement. The SE Center is looking for photographers who can make a statement. Stop us in our tracks and make us see more in the image.

 

35-40 Selected images will hang in the SE Centre’s main gallery space for approximately one month with the opportunity to be invited for a solo show at a later date.

RACE RELATIONS ACTS RESIDENCY

The Speaker’s Advisory Committee on Works of Art seeks applications to be the House of Commons’ Artist-in-Residence, tasked with exploring and celebrating the legacy of the 1965, 1968 and 1976 Race Relations Acts.

 

To develop their understanding of how Parliament reacted to demands for racial equality, the Artist-in-Residence will travel across the United Kingdom, visiting and working collaboratively with distinct communities affected by the Acts. In particular, the residency will focus on those with direct experience of life in the UK before the Race Relations Acts, of the campaign for changes in legislation, and of championing the needs of BAME communities today.

 

Working together with the artist, a specific artwork will be created reflecting each community’s unique experience. These artworks will be exhibited locally before being displayed in Parliament at a special exhibition in early 2019, after which they will be returned permanently to the communities that inspired them.

 

In addition to researching the community’s experience of the Acts through the collaborative workshops the Artist-in-Residence will explore the official records of Parliament, including the records held in the Parliamentary Archives, and meet with parliamentarians.

 

Upon completing the residency, the artist will be invited to present a proposal, based on their research and experiences, for an artwork for permanent display in the Houses of Parliament and inclusion in the Parliamentary Art Collection.

 

A fee of £25,000 will be paid to the successful practitioner for the residency. Additional funds are available for workshop materials. A separate commission fee will be paid for the creation of a permanent piece of art on the acceptance by the Speaker’s Advisory Committee on Works of Art of an agreeable proposal.

ABSTRACT/FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY 2017 COMPETITION

Can you challenge our perspective of photography?  Can you define abstract or fine art photography? Barbara Kasten (a photographer and professor) wrote that "Abstract photography challenges our popular view of photography as an objective image of reality by reasserting its constructed nature. Freed from its duty to represent, abstract photography continues to be a catchall genre for the blending of mediums and disciplines. It is an arena to test photography."

 

Prizes:

The top 20 selected images will be exhibited on our website and at a central London location for six months. Out of the 20 selected, three will win:-

First Place: £500 cash prize

Second Place: £300 cash prize

Third Place: £200 cash prize

"DANGEROUS CREATIONS: REAL-LIFE FRANKENSTEIN STORIES"

In the summer of 1816, in response to a challenge from friends to write the most terrifying possible ghost story, the young Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley dreamed up the story of a young scientist and his monstrous creation. The "Frankenstein monster" has fascinated the imagination ever since.

 

In conjunction with the ASU Frankenstein Bicentennial Project, Creative Nonfiction magazine is daring writers (as Mary Shelley was dared in Geneva) to write original and groundbreaking stories in the spirit of Frankenstein—but nonfiction. That is to say, we're looking for true stories that explore humans' efforts to control and redirect nature, the evolving relationships between humanity and science/technology, and contemporary interpretations of monstrosity.

 

Essays must be vivid and dramatic; they should combine a strong and compelling narrative with an informative or reflective element and reach beyond a strictly personal experience for some universal or deeper meaning. We're open to a broad range of interpretations of the "Frankenstein" theme, with the understanding that all works submitted must tell true stories and be factually accurate. Above all, we're looking for well-written prose, rich with detail and a distinctive voice.

CAPTURE THE MOMENT PHOTO CONTEST

The glaring difference between a photograph one remembers long after viewing, and one might sadly forget too soon, depends in part on whether the photo convincingly captures a definitive moment in time.

 

As viewers, we long for connection to these moments. In strong photos, a back story becomes apparent and the tale it tells might evoke an emotional response captivating viewers even further, burning the image into memory, allowing your audience to unfold stories of their own, all in response to your art.

 

In Duggal’s 2017 Capture the Moment Contest, we invite you to submit for consideration, a photo of one captured moment. Your image provides a unique record of one moment of inspiration. The story it tells may be abstract, concrete, internal or external – it’s up to you. Capture the moment.
