Unbound: Documentary as Art @ The Carrack

Unbound: Documentary as Art is an open group exhibition curated by Jeainny Kim, Danielle Dulken, Aaron Lovett. The Call for Art can be found at Deadline: September 8. 

Unbound: Documentary as Art is a juried exhibition featuring artists who push the boundaries of documentary with ambitious works. Through this exhibition, artists will attempt to uncover and complicate truth in ways that traditional documentary cannot.

Unbound invites artists to submit work that pose questions such as: How do we document experiences that leave no material evidence? How do we turn documentary into art to advocate for our communities? Is food documentary? Is dance documentary? Is Facebook documentary?

By reimagining documentary as art, Unbound will provide a radical and innovative space for artists to access a wider spectrum of reality. We are looking for works with diverse concepts in any medium. The term "documentary" should be considered a descriptive term rather than a model limited to conventional film or photo practices.
