Open Call – TPG New Talent
DetailsThe Photographers’ Gallery announces a new talent initiative for 2019, aimed at identifying and championing under-recognised or emerging UK-based photographers and artists through a dynamic
exhibition and mentoring programme.
TPG New Talent is open to any UK-based photographer or artist who has not yet had a significant solo exhibition or monograph published by a third-party publishing house. There is no age limit, nor need to have studied photography at an educational institution in the UK or elsewhere.
Following an open call, up to eight participants will be selected to take part in a group exhibition, which
will take place at The Photographers’ Gallery, London between 14 June – 6 October 2019. In addition, each
successful applicant will be matched with a photographer, artist or industry professional for a year-long mentorship scheme.
The longlist will be selected from an open call with the final shortlist chosen and curated by a different
international practitioner each year. The inaugural year will be selected by American artist and
photographer, Jim Goldberg.
Deadline for entries: Tuesday 19 February 2019
