We are looking for submissions of work for NOT PHOTOGRAPHY, a cross-disciplinary exhibition at Bankley Gallery, Manchester.

NOT PHOTOGRAPHY brings together work in an exhibition that continues to re-define the photographic.

We are interested in submissions from artists whose work explores the limits of photography and questions its conventions. Work will engage with critical themes such indexicality, reality effect and the virtual, technologies of the screen, as well as surface or the materiality of the image. It might or might not be made using a camera and we are also interested in work which blurrs boundaries with other media.

Please see at on Instagram for relevant context for the exhibition.

The exhibition will take place at Bankley Gallery, Manchester from 13th-29th September 2019. The Private View is scheduled for Friday, 13th September.

All applicants will be contacted by 31st March to let you know if the work has been selected.
