Newspace Center for Photography is pleased to present its 6th Annual Juried Exhibition. This year’s exhibition was curated by Darren Ching, owner of Klompching Gallery in New York City. From close to 300 entries and approximately 1,500 individual images, Darren Ching selected these 11 photographers.
The challenge with curating the Newspace Center of Photography’s 6th Annual Juried Exhibition, was not having a preconceived concept for the show and to allow the theme itself to emerge from the strongest photographs submitted.
Despite the comprehensive range of visual strategies employed, what materialized from the 1,500+ images submitted, appeared to be a pre-occupation with the way in which surroundings define-even embody-the notion of refuge. This notion of shelter, of sanctuary, became the curatorial concept by which final selections were made. What results is an exhibition from eleven photographers that could be seen to be emblematic of contemporary photography, exploring subjects such as vulnerability, nostalgia, intimacy and privacy.
The exhibition takes place from Friday, July 2nd through Sunday, August 1st. Please join us at the opening reception on Friday, July 2nd from 6-9 pm.
