International Call to Artists, Mirror, mirror, Foley Gallery
Deadline: October 29, 2017
Foley Gallery is excited to announce a call-for-entry for our upcoming exhibition Mirror, Mirror. Artists working in all mediums are encouraged to submit original work for consideration.
Juror, Elinor Carucci, will select 4 artists to exhibit their work from November 29 – January 7.
Mirrors and Beauty go hand in hand. Originally an incantation in the Brothers Grimm 19th-century story Little Snow White and expanded upon in Disney’s version more than 100 years later, “Mirror, mirror” has us questioning what beauty is and how it can be measured. Mirrors are reflective surfaces, typically constructed of glass coated with a metal amalgam that reflects a clear image. You can take our theme literally and look to the properties of a mirror or reflective surface, or you can look at a mirror as metaphor for beauty. You artwork need not have a depiction of an actual mirror in it to be considered.
Mirror, Mirror will be juried by Elinor Carruci, and will coincide with Sage Sohier’s solo exhibition Witness to Beauty.
Elinor Carruci is an Israeli-American photographer who has had solo exhibitions at Edwynn Houk Gallery, Fifty One Fine Art Gallery, James Hyman and Gagosian Gallery, London. Carruci’s photographs are included in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art New York, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, and the Houston Museum of Fine Art, among others. She has published three monographs to date, Closer, Chronicle Books 2002, Diary of a dancer, SteidlMack 2005 and Mother, Prestel Publishing, portraying nearly a decade of her motherhood project.
She was awarded the International Center of Photography Infinity Award for Young Photographer in 2001, The Guggenheim Fellowship in 2002 and NYFA in 2010.
