Excited to announce that Its a Mess Without You is an OpenWalls Arles Outstanding Series Winner. The international award is presented by Galerie Huit Arles and the British Journal of Photography, opening the walls of the gallery – and the pages of BJP – to reach new audiences.
The full series will be spotlighted in an OpenWalls Arles exhibition at Galerie Huit Arles, a late 17th-century mansion in Arles' historic town center. Tres Fancy!
The exhibit was originally scheduled to run simultaneously with Les Recontres d'Arles – perhaps the world's largest and most esteemed photography festival – alas canceled this year because of Covid-19. Arles will present special summer programing, but not on the scale of the 145,000 participants hosted last year.
It’s A Mess Without You also figures prominently in a online exhibition, and in an upcoming spread in the British Journal of Photography. Founded in 1854, BJP is the world’s oldest photography title.
With 570,000 facebook and 125,000 instagram followers, @bpj1854 will definitely reach a new online audience.
That's my photo, yo!
OpenWalls is necessarily more virtual this year, as all artists and exhibitors adapt to a new world. Last month, I posted a journal entry exploring these challenges, leading to TODAY's ZoomCast Experiencing Art: Under Lockdown & Beyond, hosted by the Venice Institute of Contemporary Art. Join us "here" Thursday, June 11 at 1:00pm PST/20:00 GMT.
Our "PHOTO OF THE MONTH" is any of the 10 classic images in the OpenWalls-winning portfolio, available directly from Chungking Studio at 15% off thru June 31. Check-out the new, improved website, which now includes detailed size/pricing info and installation views. So OpenWalls, open wallets? 😉
