Open Society Documentary Photography Project > Moving Walls 25: Exhibition and Fellowship
The Open Society Documentary Photography Project is soliciting submissions for a new joint exhibition and fellowship opportunity focused on the topic of migration. Selected projects will be featured in the next installment of our ongoing Moving Walls exhibition series, opening in September 2018 at the Open Society Foundations—New York. Selected artists will also receive a fellowship of $30,000–$60,000 to support ongoing or future work on the theme of migration.
The organisers are especially interested in work that expands the boundaries of documentary photography and image-based art that comes from the perspective of migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers themselves, or is made through sustained and meaningful collaboration with these communities.
The organisers invite proposals about work that engages with topics of migration, identity, belonging, and resilience from a variety of perspectives. They encourage applicants to interpret these themes broadly.
They welcome a wide range of photo- and image-based approaches, including documentary photography, conceptual photography, video art, video installation, social practice, archival or aggregated projects, interactive and emerging media (including virtual and augmented reality), and information art (using photography and/or associated data).
Deadline: 20 April 2018
