Casa Árabe and PHotoEspaña jointly present NUR, an open call for applications for a photography exhibition that will be displayed at Casa Árabe’s premises as part of the 24th PHotoESPAÑA
Casa Árabe and PHotoEspaña jointly present NUR, an open call for applications for a photography exhibition that will be displayed at Casa Árabe’s premises as part of the 24th PHotoESPAÑA International Photography Festival, within its official programme, to be held in 2021.
The aim of this open call is to promote and publicise a project that looks at one or several aspects of Arabic societies, from a contemporary curatorial perspective. The call seeks to reward attempts to innovate, while conveying current content that have to do with the realities of the contemporary Arab world. This content is presented in a manner which is deliberately open and non-restrictive as regards subject matter, so that a wide range of diverse initiatives can be accommodated, without limitations as regards to the content, approaches or working techniques, and so that projects focused on a single artist or projects of a collective nature can be submitted.
The call is aimed at curators or institutions, who have demonstrable prior experience and who submit an exhibition project which complies with the guidelines outlined here.
All projects will be reviewed and evaluated by the organisation, which reserves the right not to admit those that do not meet the requirements of the call.
The jury, made up of three experts from the fields of photography and cultural cooperation with the Arab world, will select one exhibition proposal from all the entries received.
The selected project will be on public display in the form of an exhibition at Casa Árabe’s Madrid premises (c/ Alcalá, 62) in June 2021, as part of the 24th PHotoEspaña Festival, with the possibility of it being shown at a later date at Casa Árabe’s premises in Córdoba (c/ Samuel de los Santos y Gener, 9).
The deadline is extended until 14 March 2021
January 11 (Monday) - March 14 (Sunday)
Arab House Madrid C / Alcalá, 62
