CALL for ENTRIES: Monsters

2018 January 21

Learn more about the Monsters exhibit from NY Photo Curator!


Winter is bearing down on my culinary sensibilities; it does every year.  In need of tomatoes for a recipe, I ventured into the produce section of my local grocer on a mission.  I was greeted with $4/lb. hot house tomatoes shipped in from a climate that should not require a hot house for them to flourish.  The most amazing part is that I only had to buy one.  Why?  Because the one tomato I bought, while beautifully folded like so many of my favorite heirloom varieties, was dense like a cannon ball and nearly three-quarters the size of my head.  Monster tomatoes are in a store near you.  (Spring can’t come soon enough.)  In the meantime, your monstrous work is welcomed by this next Call.  It is the first Call for this online publication; don’t miss out…

Check out this inaugural Call for Entries from N.Y. Photo Curator (online) for the Monsters exhibit. $20 entry, no shipping, plus art publication for ALL entrants.   $20 entry for this unique call.  Take a look…

ELIGIBILITY: Open to all artists

MEDIA: Photography

THEME:  Monsters. “Teratology. Cryptozoology. Therianthropy. All of these terms are related to the study of monsters. Monsters are at once foreign and familiar, and they take on a good deal of cultural work, reflecting back to us our own monstrous side as well as representing “otherness”. Protectors or destroyers, they elicit reflection on the complexities of our nature . . . As a society, we consume monster-centric media in mass quantities, from volumes of fairy tales to horror flicks to serial killers presented on screen and in podcasts. From Totoro to Pan’s Labyrinth, be they gentle or malicious, monsters demonstrate a broad and intensely creative diversity of form, and there is a rich art historical archive of images and sculpture dating back centuries and reaching across cultural boundaries. –Anne Eder
