Open (C)all 2017 Exhibition

May 12 - August 13, 2017

Call for Exhibition Submissions

The Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) invites Hampton Roads artists of all ages to participate in our upcoming Open (C)all 2017 exhibition.

This summer, MOCA presents a series of photography exhibitions: Muse: Mickalene Thomas Photographs and tête à tête, and Southern Routes. These exhibitions take different approaches to photography as a means for expression and exploration. Ideas surrounding beauty, identity and place in the context of culture are taken apart, examined and reassembled.

For this Open (C)all 2017 exhibition, MOCA invites Hampton Roads artists to respond to our summer exhibitions through the medium of photography. Who are you? How is your identity best represented through a contemporary lens? This can mean portraiture, landscape, still life. Can you explain who you are through direct documentation or is a surreal setting more in order?

Photography will be the only media accepted for this exhibition. The photography should reflect who is creating the work. Show who you are and have your work featured in MOCA’s Community Gallery this summer!

An opening reception will take place on May 11, 2017 at 6:30pm. Each participating artist is invited to attend and will be included on the guest list.
