Deadline: December 1, 2021
We are pleased to announce that proposals for participation in the next edition of our group photography exhibition series titled, Perspectives from Within (PFW), are now being accepted.
The fourth edition of our PFW exhibition sharpens our focus on exploring and celebrating Africa as told from insider perspectives. The theme for this edition is “Culture Through Fashion”. Here, we explore the significance of fashion on African cultures and vice versa. The purpose of this exhibition is to highlight the beauty in African people through the various ways in which they adorn their bodies. Essentially, the exhibition will feature photographs from a group of African photographers that directly, or indirectly, incorporate fashion into their work.
Questions that drive the curatorial conceptualization of this exhibition are: How has contemporary fashion in Africa preserved, and or adapted, cultural traditions? What is African fashion expected to be, and how are Africans perpetuating, and or challenging, these expectations? What does a world look like where Africans are free to express their genuine selves as they wish through fashion?
