The follow up to our last call for entries, The Vernacular of Landscape, which resulted in a book featuring 58 artists, physical exhibitions in Detroit and NYC, an online exhibition, numerous Instagram features, and Subjectively Objective monographs for 15 of the artists who submitted (with even more on the way). Our goal is to make an even more amazing book this time. Even if you’ve submitted before, we’d love to see your work again.
We’re accepting submissions of up to 10 images for the upcoming book & exhibition, Observations in the Ordinary, curated by Noah Waldeck. The Submission Deadline is February 28th. Everyone who submits is entitled to a free copy* of the book, regardless of whether your work is accepted. In addition to appearing in the book and online exhibition, accepted artists will also have the opportunity to participate in a physical exhibition at Subjectively Objective’s Detroit area gallery space.
Submitting also gives you a chance to be showcased in one of associate curator Valérie Timmermans’ Features. The sooner you submit, the greater your chance of being featured.
Don’t worry about taking the title too literally. We’re interested in seeing all types of contemporary landscape, portrait, conceptual, and documentary work. If you want an idea of the type of imagery we’re particularly interested in, take a look at Volume 2: Subjectively Objective, The Vernacular of Landscape, our Instagram Gallery, or any of our other publications. You don’t need to limit yourself though, we’re always looking out for ways to feature or publish good work, even if it isn’t right for this publication.
Once you’ve paid your submission fee, you’ll be able to download a PDF which provides further instructions on the submissions process.
*Plus shipping costs. Once the publication is ready, you’ll be able to return to the store to pay for shipping and confirm your address. We will make sure that shipping is as affordable as possible.
