CALL FOR EXHIBITION PROPOSALS

Filter Photo hosts an annual call for proposals for the exhibition calendar at Filter Space. We welcome photography proposals of all types, whether traditional or experimental or coming from an emerging curator or a veteran artist. Filter Photo hopes to attract a broad range of proposals that reflect the creative diversity of the contemporary photography community. Proposals will be reviewed by Filter Photo Staff, alongside an outside Exhibition Advisory Committee.
