Context 2016

juried by Jennifer Murray

Filter Photo is pleased to present Context 2016, our 2nd annual survey exhibition of contemporary photography. This edition was juried by Jennifer Murray, and features the work of 30 artists.


Jurors Statement

While looking through such a diverse collection of images for this second spring Open Call at Filter Space, various themes naturally emerged. While photography as a medium has such breadth, there are often recurring ideas and nuances of human culture that we continually use photography to reflect upon. Loosely based on the idea of fragility, a recurring and unifying theme in this exhibition, the works chosen all seek to reveal the fragile, tenuous, and often vulnerable state that accompanies contemporary life.
