NUDE GEOGRAPHIES

OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday Nov 13th 6-8pm
Exhibition Dates: Nov 13th - 27th, 2021

Guest Curator | Douglas Beasley

The nude form has been portrayed in art throughout history, from the classical era to the enlightenment and the modern era. The nude figure in western art - specifically in photography - has expressed ideals of female and male beauty along with other human qualities including life, energy, and an array of complicated human emotions.

 

Praxis Gallery presents photographic works that explore the nude in any of its varied styles including: figure studies, environmental nudes, implied nudes, explorations of sexuality and erotica - just to name a few of the many iterations of this genre.

OPEN THEME

OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, Nov 13th 6pm-8pm
Exhibition Dates: Nov 13th - 27th, 2021

Juror | Carl Corey - Guggenheim Fellow

The Photograph is an extended, loaded evidence — as if it caricatured not the figure of what it represents but its very existence... The Photograph then becomes a bizarre medium, a new form of hallucination: false on the level of perception, true on the level of time: on the one hand "it is not there", on the other "but it has been.” - Roland Barthes

Praxis Gallery presents the submission of photographic art of any genre and any subject matter that represents the artist’s endeavor to reveal through the photographic process a personal declaration of visual significance - be it a celebration of pure aesthetic formalism, of humor or conflict - of fiction or fact - or any other literal or ephemeral lens based investigation.

THE SECRET LIFE OF COLOR

Opening Reception: Saturday Oct 16th 6-8pm
Exhibition Dates: Oct 16th - Oct 30th, 2021

Guest Curator | Ellen Carey

When you seek to define a specific color, there are three properties to consider; Hue, Value, and Saturation. These properties are the building blocks of the poetic and symbolic signification of color in creative photographic expression.

 

Colors evoke certain moods, thoughts, ideas, and concepts, merely by their presence. Color creates different emotions and feelings. These reactions are rooted in psychological effects, biological conditioning and cultural imprinting.

 

Praxis Gallery presents photographic art that explores the implications of color as a central device in the creation of compelling photographic art.

AFTER DARK

OPENING RECEPTION: Oct 16th 6-8pm
Exhibition Dates: Oct 16th - 30th 2021
 

Juror | Cory Fitzgerald

“Night does not show things, it suggests them. It disturbs and surprises us with its strangeness. It liberates forces within us which are dominated by our reason during the daytime.” ― Brassai
 

Spanning two centuries the subject of the night has inspired an explosion of interest among contemporary artists. Natural vistas, celestial bodies, urban landscapes, factories, artificial structures, and nocturnal interludes represent but a few of the limitless subjects of nighttime photography.

Praxis Gallery presents photographic works that explore the fundamental qualities that make night photography - from dusk to dawn - a compelling contemporary art form.

IN-BETWEEN MOMENTS

Opening Reception Saturday Sept 18th 6-8pm
Exhibition Dates: Sept 18th - Oct 2nd, 2021

Guest Curator| Sarah Weiss

French novelist Georges Perec declared that we should found “an anthropology of the ordinary” as revolt against cultural and mass media exploitation of the exotic - the relentless parade of trauma elevated above the routine of everyday events. Perec’s revolt against the frenzy of trauma (the shameful, the voyeuristic and the spectacular) was to excessively document the ordinary in daily life, meticulously accounting for everything and anything in one’s immediate surroundings in an active attempt to uncover the unimportant and the insignificant.

 

Praxis Gallery presents photographic art that explores the in-between moments of life and endeavours to notice the unnoticeable, the mundane, the banal and anti-climactic. "In giving value to the ordinary we, in turn, begin to value the space of our own identity and everyday ‘normal’ experience that lies outside of commodified and predefined trajectories of trauma exploitation.

The Shape of Things

Opening Reception Sept 18th 6-8pm
Exhibition Dates: Sept 18th - Oct 2nd, 2021

Juror: Praxis Directors 

The rhythm of surfaces, lines, and values is for me the essence of photography; composition should be a constant of preoccupation... an organic coordination of visual elements. – Henri Cartier-Bresson

The term composition means ‘putting together’ or the act of combining parts or elements to form a whole - often adhering to compositional principles that make a work of photographic art more appealing or intriguing to viewers. These principles include the development of rhythm, movement, contrast, balance, unity, proximity and continuity to create expressive and compelling compositions – while emphasizing different visual concepts.

                                                           

Praxis Gallery presents works of art that explore composition as a fundamental aspect of the photographic aesthetic – be it pure visual formalism or in support of thematic objectives.

THE ARTIST INTERVENES

Opening Reception: Saturday, Aug 21st 6-8pm
Exhibition Dates: Aug 21- Sept 4th 2021

Guest Curator | Aline Smithson

Photographic artists are reconsidering the potential of a photograph with a shift to making rather than taking photographs.  By using vintage and contemporary photographs as a starting point, artists create physically layered works of art that result in an object, often in reaction to the flood of ubiquitous imagery that digital and cell phone photography has afforded. 

 

Praxis Gallery presents photographic art or lens-based artwork that utilizes physical interventions and investigations of photographic surfaces that can include sewing, cutting, drawing, painting, tearing, bending, and weaving, all ways of interrogating the material qualities of a physical photograph to create new realities.

THE STREETS

Opening Reception Saturday 6-9pm Aug 21st 2021
Exhibition Dates: Aug 21st - Sept 4th, 2021

Juror | Layne Kennedy 

"Street Photography became recognized as a genre in its own right during the early 1930s. Street Photography is unique in the way it is associated with the photographer's skill in capturing something of the mystery and aura of everyday city living. The Street Photographer is then often likened to the historical figure of the flâneur: namely someone who mingles anonymously amongst the crowd observing and recording the ways the unsuspecting city

dweller interacts with his or her environment". www.theartstory.org

Praxis Gallery presents photographic art that explores the genre of street photography from all angles, including people, urban structure, and documentary subject matter.

ANTHOLOGIES 2

Six Artists • Six Short Stories
Opening Reception: Saturday, July 17th 6-8pm
Exhibit Dates: July 17th - 31st, 2021

Jury Panel: Praxis Directors

Praxis Gallery is inaugurating a biennial, small group exhibition featuring narrative based collections of photographic art limited to six artists with four images each. The title of the show, Anthologies, is derived from the Greek meaning “to gather, or collect”. In this precise sense Praxis Gallery seeks to explore the manner in which photographic artists gather and organize images into collections - thereby creating meaning. However, this is not an exercise in sequencing images or linear chronologies; it is more an interpretive exploration of the interdependence of each image vis a vis the collective meaning of the group of images - indulging the viewer to extract their own subjectivities, searching for meaning out of collected images that may seem meandering, anfractuous and excursionary – as much as they may also seem explicit and absolute in substance.

LIQUID ~ SKY

Opening Reception: July 17th 6-8pm
Exhibition Dates: July 17th - July 31st, 2021

Juror | Ellen Jantzen

Liquid conforms to the shape of its container. The sky is an abstract sphere, centered on the earth. Liquid, Water, Sky and the liminal space between are by definition poetic and symbolic. Yet there are infinite iterations of liquid & sky: consider our human drive to master and contain liquids (pools, levies, faucets and bottles); idiomatic lamentations of “spilt milk” or “water under the bridge”– while also reaching upward in towering buildings, air planes, and rockets pushing skyward.

Praxis Gallery presents photographic art that explores the ideas of liquid and sky in their myriad iterations; from landscapes to still life – from scientific to conceptual, Praxis seeks a broadly interpreted investigation of these forever flowing, forever ethereal ideas.

FEMALIA

Opening Night Reception June 19th 6-8pm
Exhibition Dates: June 19th – July 3rd 2021

Guest Curator | Elizabeth Flinsch

We are programmed to understand gender and femininity within narrow and restrictive definitions. Photographs, both historical and contemporary, often reinforce these definitions and boundaries that no longer serve us. 

 

Photography has the power to transcend all manner of boundaries. It can blur miniscule lines between otherwise dichotomous realms of physical and philosophical space. If we are to reflect on photography’s capacity to challenge concepts of gender and femininity, we enter into an extraordinary opportunity to re-envision and expand our understanding of all who identify as women. We can confront our programmed understandings and reinterpret, both what is in front of the camera and what is behind it. 

Praxis Gallery presents photographic art or lens-based artwork that challenges, criticizes, redefines, and disrupts our concepts of female identity.
