! This slideshow will feature emerging and established photographers and artists. Slideluck Potshow provides a venue for photojournalists, painters, fashion and fine-art photographers to present work alongside one another in a relaxed and spirited atmosphere. We are currently seeking cohesive
, creative, and thought-provoking submissions.
The theme for this slideshow is community. SLPS New Orleans Director, Andrea Caldwell, and Andy Levin, creator and curator of 100Eyes
, an online photographic showcase featuring contemporary photography including documentary, art, and alternative photojournalism will be curating the show.
": so chosen for its breadth of interpretation and relevance to our daily lives, or rather, the art of daily living
We not only want to see
communities, from the quotidian existence of a termite colony to the front row faces of the fashion world, we want to see work that ponders the idea
of community. What comprises it? How is it maintained? Sustained? Preserved? How does it, or can it, grow? Deteriorate?
Those questions leads one to think about cause and effect... Communities are made up of individuals that exist in a physical world - How does an individual effect a community? It is true that one can't give someone or something more than they have - so how does preservation of the self relate to the whole? Or preservation of nature? Or how does nature, in general, effect a community? Of course, your submission needs not be comprehensive or representative of community; at the least, a grazing.
Only the first half of the slideshow will consist of themed work; the second half will include any and all types. Presentations are a maximum of 5 minutes each, but most are much shorter, and we recommend between 15-40 images. Work is accepted in digital format only. We encourage all types of media that can be presented within this framework, be it painting, sculpture, or installation art. However, they must be comprised mainly of still images - no film or video will be considered, although multimedia pieces using video as punctuation can be submitted. When presenting photographs, there are many ways to go about it. One should not be afraid of making thoughtful observations, creating narratives, combining live music, speaking, or even performing with images. We want to see good work, but it need not be safe. Show us work in progress, outtakes from a job or if that makes you uneasy, show us your absolute finest work, because we like that, too.Slideluck Potshow
is a non-profit arts organization that provides an opportunity for artists and arts-appreciators to gather around food, friends, and artwork. The evening begins with a couple hours of mingling and dining on the home-cooked delights of those who attend (as it's a potluck), then the lights are dimmed, the crowd is hushed, and a spectacular uniquely curated slideshow commences.
