Call for Photographic Entries - Public Exhibition
Date: 12 November 2009 Time: 23.59 pm
Venue: The Peter Scott Gallery
The Peter Scott Gallery, part of the Public Arts at Lancaster University, is currently seeking photographic entries by Lancaster and Morecambe residents for their 'Experimentality' exhibition in the New Year.
Anyone living in the Lancaster and Morecambe area can enter, young or old. Chosen by a distinguished panel, winning entries will form a public exhibition in Spring 2010.
The Gallery have linked up with the Institute for Advanced Studies (IAS) and their year long theme of Experimentality. Entries should respond to the title of 'The Experiment'. This could be a photograph of an actual or imagined experiment, or be experimental in form or content. You can use a digital or film camera, or more unusual kinds of photography (lomo, camera-less, pinhole, camera obscura etc).
The Deadline for entries is: Friday 4th December 2009.
Experimentality is the 2009-2010 Annual Research Programme of the Institute for Advanced Studies at Lancaster University, and is being delivered in collaboration with LICA and many other organisations across the Northwest of England. It is a year-long collaborative exploration of ideas and practices of experimentation in science and technology, the arts, commerce, politics, popular culture and everyday life. In a linked series of events in the Northwest of England - interdisciplinary workshops, arts events, and an international conference - it brings together leading practitioners from various fields; academics from the social and natural sciences, arts and humanities; and members of the wider public. It uses the notion of the experiment to explore vital questions about the relationship between knowledge and power, freedom and control in the modern world.
