“Following the popularity of last year’s foto/pods deployment, and the runaway success of Photoville (www.photovillenyc.org), United Photo Industries returns to the DUMBO Arts Festival with foto/pods 2012 – a hamlet of shipping container exhibitions, tents, outdoor projections and much much more.
And we are looking to YOU to send us your best, most imaginative proposals for a photo-based exhibition in a shipping container, Photoville-style.
The Dumbo Arts Festival is a multi-disciplinary arts festival that presents the best in local, national, and international art – attracting more than 200,000 visitors over 3 days amid the breathtaking backdrop of the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan skyline.
Submit your best idea, and if selected, we’ll provide the shipping container, the lights, the hanging rails, the art handlers, the staffing — pretty much everything but the art!
The one and only rule is that you have a 20ft x 8ft shipping container and it’s yours to do what you like. The shipping container is your oyster!
The exhibitions will take place during the Dumbo Arts Festival 2012 in Dumbo, Brooklyn from September 28-30
Prize: A solo exhibition in a 20ft container during the Dumbo Arts Festival 2012 (www.dumboartsfestival.com), converted by United Photo Industries into a temporary exhibition space.
Fee to enter: $30 per 15 photographs or 3 multimedia pieces (images should be part of the same series or thematic group). Individuals may pay to enter an unlimited amount of times.
