OPEN CALL | SHARJAH ART FOUNDATION – Vantage Point Sharjah 12 by Icaro Junho 14, 2024 0 Oportunidades

Sharjah Art Foundation announces the open call for the 12th iteration of its annual photography exhibition, Vantage Point Sharjah (VPS). This year’s theme, ‘If I Were Another’, derives from the title of a poem by Mahmoud Darwish, which addresses intimate individual experiences and the weight of history and collective memory. VPS12 is an invitation to see the world through the lens of others who hold different identities, histories and sensibilities.

Emerging photographers working in all areas, genres and styles are welcome to submit applications in line with this year’s theme. The selection committee will identify five artists whose work will be showcased in a group exhibition from 28 September to 8 December 2024 at Bait Obaid Al Shamsi. The shortlisted artists will be encouraged to present in creative formats, and a proportion of the production funding will be provided by the Foundation. As well as the opportunity to exhibit, the chosen artists will benefit from professional support, including workshops and mentorships devised to foster their development as photographers.
