Visualizing Home and Homelessness 
October 9 - November 13, 2015

Visualizing Home and Homelessness explores the human experience of home and homelessness.  This juried exhibition of work by photographers with connections to Maine invites the viewer to ask challenging questions about their sense of place and identity.  How do we experience a place?  How do we come to belong in a place, or to identify with a place?  What leads us to become estranged or alienated from places?  The photographic images in this exhibition provide opportunities to consider different ways of thinking about what it means to be “at home” or “homeless” in the places where we live.

A CALL FOR ARTISTS

The University of Maine’s Lord Hall Gallery announces a call to artists for a juried photography exhibition, Visualizing Home and Homelessness, to be held from October 9 to November 13, 2015.  Photographic submissions must explore the human experience of home and/or homelessness, and must encourage the viewer to ask challenging questions about their sense of place and identity.  How do we experience a place?  How do we come to belong in a place, or to identify with a place?  What leads us to become estranged or alienated from places?  The photographic images selected for inclusion in this exhibition must provide opportunities to consider different ways of thinking about what it means to be “at home” or “homeless”. As this exhibition is part of the Maine Photo Project (http://www.mainephotoproject.org/), photographers must be Maine citizens or have a connection to Maine, or the photographs themselves must represent Maine locations.  Jurors:  George DeWolf (photographer - www.georgedewolfe.com), Elizabeth Greenberg (Maine Media Workshops - www.mainemedia.edu / http://www.mainemedia.edu/instructors/photo/elizabeth-greenberg) and Laurie E. Hicks (University of Maine, Department of Art, Professor and Curator, Lord Hall Gallery - http://umaine.edu/art/faculty/hicks/). 

Submission deadline: April 10, 2015.
