Candela Books + Gallery is announcing our ninth annual
invitational and juried exhibition: UnBound9!

July 3rd – August 1st, 2020

—–

This annual summer group exhibition is the only open call we hold each year and is dedicated to featuring a wide range of photographic artworks and fine art photography and artists’ books from 40-50 fine art photographers. UnBound! generates opportunities and exposure beyond the traditional group or juried show by providing a collection opportunity for artists.

During the exhibition, an annual gala event is held to raise funds, which allows Candela to purchase select works from the exhibition. Works acquired by the event proceeds are then added to the gallery’s Candela Collection. The mission of the Candela Collection is to support photographers through the purchase of original photographic work and to actively pursue opportunities to donate said works to notable permanent collections. The Candela Collection currently includes 68 photographic artworks and 14 fine art photography books.

Our hope is that photographers will support our UnBound! exhibition with their active participation just as we hope to support their work and careers in return. All accepted artists will have their artwork featured at Candela Gallery, a gallery space in the downtown arts district of Richmond, Virginia.

Curated by Mark Sealy MBE, Director of the renowned London-based photographic art institution Autograph ABP, African Cosmologies is a large-scale group exhibition that examines the complex relationships between contemporary life in Africa, the African diaspora, and global histories of colonialism, photography, and rights and representation. The exhibition considers the history of photography as one closely tied to a colonial project and Western image production, highlighting artists who confront and challenge this shortsighted, albeit canonized lineage.

Workshop: Survey of Contemporary Photography

Join artist and curator Beth Lilly as she presents the work of today’s most influential photographic artists.  This three-part class will not only look at the work of both fast-rising and well-established artists but also explores their influences, where they are shown and who are today’s movers and shakers in art photography.

Why should I take this workshop?

This class is not only for photo enthusiasts and collectors, it is also vital for photographic artists.  Curators, critics and directors expect artists to be familiar with current photography trends and communicate how their own work fits into today’s world. This deep dive into the most interesting and/or influential work of the past two decades can not only offer insights into your own work, inspire new ideas, and puts perspective on your work but it can also help you connect with the broader art photography community.

Instructor: Beth Lilly

Beth Lilly is an artist, curator, teacher and the former executive director for Atlanta Photography Group.   An exhibiting artist for over 30 years, recent exhibitions include Spalding Nix Fine Art, New Mexico Museum of Art, The High Museum of Art, the Zuckerman Museum, Whitespace Gallery, the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, and MOCA GA. Her work resides in the permanent collections of the High Museum, the New Mexico Museum of Art, The Ogden Museum of Southern Art, MOCA GA, the Metropolitan Atlanta Arts Fund and many private collections.  She has taught photography for both Kennesaw State University, the Art Institute of Atlanta and the High Museum. Her critically acclaimed performance/interactive project “The Oracle @ WiFi” was published by Kehrer Verlag in 2012. Lilly earned a MFA in Photography from Georgia State University and an A.B.J. in Telecommunication Arts from the University of Georgia.

Words & Pictures: Dr. Tanisha Ford

Lecture

April 22

1441 W Alabama Houston, TX

In conjunction with the exhibition, Tools of Revolution: Fashion Photography and Activism, Houston Center for Photography presents a lecture by Dr. Tanisha C. Ford on the under-recognized photographic work of Harlem-based, Civil Rights activist and photographer, Kwame Brathwaite. Having written extensively about Brathwaite’s work in Kwame Brathwaite: Black Is Beautiful (Aperture, 2019), Dr. Ford’s expertise on the artist combined with her scholarship on fashion and activism will offer our Houston community unique insight into the powerful intertwining histories of the Black Freedom movement and the rise of the global fashion industry.

Dr. Tanisha C. Ford is a foremost voice speaking on the intersection of politics and culture. She is an award-winning writer, cultural critic, and Associate Professor of Africana Studies & History at the University of Delaware. A native of a mid-sized Midwestern city most people have never heard of, Tanisha enjoys telling the histories of often-overlooked people and places. Her commitment to social justice and communities of color is evident in everything she produces. Tanisha’s work centers on social movement history, feminist issues, material culture, the built environment, black life in the Rust Belt, girlhood studies, and fashion, beauty, and body politics. She makes connections between the past and the present in ways that shed refreshing new light on contemporary cultural and political issues. Tanisha is the author of three books: the forthcoming Dressed in Dreams: A Black Girl’s Love Letter to the Power of FashionKwame Brathwaite: Black is Beautiful, and Liberated Threads: Black Women, Style, and the Global Politics of Soul. Her writing and cultural commentary have been featured in diverse media outlets and publications including the New York Times, the Atlantic, ELLE.comThe RootAperture, CBSNews, WNYC, and New York City’s HOT 97.
