The Alice Austen House is currently accepting photography and multimedia submissions for Ecologies #3. Ecology is the study of the relationships between living things and their changing environments. Looking through the lens of Staten Island residents and outsiders documenting the borough, this juried exhibition will explore contemporary themes and narratives that begin to reveal our evolving responses to the rapidly changing social and natural environment in this complex borough.
A shortlist will be honored on our social media and the selected artists will be exhibited in the final exhibition, opening in March in the contemporary galleries of the Alice Austen House museum.
An expert panel of judges will review and select entries for inclusion in the exhibition to be curated by Paul Moakley and Victoria Munro. Entries should be taken by photographers who are from or reside in Staten Island, or if taken by photographers outside of Staten Island, should be about Staten Island. Entries must aim to explore contemporary themes and narratives in their work through traditional, digital, and innovative uses of the medium.
