Moving Walls 23: Group Exhibition 2015 in New York
The Open Society Documentary Photography Project is soliciting proposals for our next exhibition, Moving Walls 23, opening in June 2015 at Open Society Foundations–New York.
We are seeking photo-based documentary projects that address a social justice or human rights issue in any region where the Open Society Foundations are active.
Since 1998, Moving Walls has showcased over 200 photographers in 22 group exhibitions—at our offices in New York, Washington, D.C., and London—that align with the Open Society Foundations’ mission to advance human rights and social justice.
In order to be considered eligible to apply, you must fulfill all of the following criteria:
- Any emerging or veteran photographer who is working long-term to document a human rights or social justice issue may apply for Moving Walls.
- We welcome all applicants, and especially encourage those from underrepresented groups (e.g., applicants from Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, and the Middle East; people representing marginalized groups; and women). All submissions will be considered. The Open Society Foundations does not discriminate based on any status that may be protected by applicable law.
The exhibition will take place in June 2015 in New York. The foundation will cover the cost of printing and framing, the US$2,500 participation fee and return shipment of photographs. It will also cover participants’ travel and accomodation costs to attend the exhibition’s opening reception and related events.
