The New Orleans Photo Alliance announces the call for entries for “The American Dream” Juried By: Deborah Willis
Entries must be submitted by December 14th, 2009
From the website:
“The American Dream is that dream of a land in which life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement…It is not a dream of motor cars and high wages merely, but a dream of social order in which each man and each woman shall be able to attain to the fullest stature of which they are innately capable, and be recognized by others for what they are, regardless of the fortuitous circumstances of birth or position.”
James Truslow Adams, THE EPIC OF AMERICA, 1931.
What does the American Dream look like? How is it now defined? Has it been realized? The New Orleans Photo Alliance is seeking contemporary photographs that explore these questions and more about The American Dream. Dr. Deborah Willis, chair of the Department of Photography and Imaging at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts and one of the nation’s leading historians of African American photography, will jury this exhibition.
