Casa Árabe and PHotoEspaña jointly present the second edition of NUR, an open call for applications for a photography exhibition that will be displayed at Casa Árabe’s premises as part of the 25th PHotoESPAÑA International Photography Festival, within its official programme, to be held in 2022.
The aim of this open call is to promote and publicise a project that looks at one or several aspects of Arabic societies, from a contemporary curatorial perspective. The call seeks to reward attempts to innovate, while conveying current content that has to do with the realities of the contemporary Arab world. This content is presented in a manner which is deliberately open and non-restrictive as regards subject matter, so that a wide range of diverse initiatives can be accommodated, without limitations as regards to the content, approaches or working techniques, and so that projects focused on a single artist or projects of a collective nature can be submitted.
The call is aimed at curators or institutions, who have demonstrable prior experience.
The selected project will be on public display in the form of an exhibition at Casa Árabe’s Madrid premises in June 2022, as part of the 25th PHotoEspaña Festival, with the possibility of it being shown at a later date at Casa Árabe’s premises in Córdoba.
Partners for this edition of the NUR open call are the Bienal Fotografia do Porto and Tribe Photo Magazine. The winner may be offered the chance to show their project at the Bienal or have their photos published in the magazine.
For the exhibition at the Madrid premises, Casa Árabe will allocate a maximum of €15,000 (including VAT).
Deadline: 31 January 2022
