Juror: Industry of the Ordinary

"Through sculpture, text, photography, video, sound, and performance, Industry of the Ordinary are dedicated to an exploration and celebration of the customary, the everyday, and the usual. Their emphasis is on challenging pejorative notions of the ordinary and, in doing so, moving beyond the quotidian."

Works in progress, one-offs, inkjet prints, silver gelatin, alternative processes and more are welcome. All types of 2D photo-based work are welcome for this pin-up exhibition that will showcase smaller work in celebration of the ordinary. This is a call for unframed work only. Prints will be pinned to the wall to create a studio-like environment.

Selected artists will be exhibited at Filter Space from September 20th - October 19th, 2019. We will have public reception concurrent with our other exhibition, The Universal, on September 20th, 6 – 9 pm during the 2019 Filter Photo Festival and Expo Chicago’s Art After Hours.

Fees: $35 for up to 3 images, $5 for each additional image
