EXPOSURE: The 19th Annual PRC Juried Exhibition (June 18 − July 26, 2015)
Juror: Kristen Gresh, Estrellita and Yousuf Karsh Assistant Curator of Photographs, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
Deadline for Submission: April 12, 2015
The Photographic Resource Center is thrilled to announce its annual juried show and esteemed juror: Kristen Gresh, Estrellita and Yousuf Karsh Assistant Curator of Photographs, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
The PRC invites entries for EXPOSURE: The 19th Annual PRC Juried Exhibition and seeks a broad range of work, including both traditional and non-traditional approaches to photography. Since its inception in 1996, over 300 photographers have shown in the PRC Juried Exhibitions—including an array of established photographers and those cited as “ones to watch.”  Each year, a respected member of the photographic community—from curators to gallerists to photo editors—is asked to select ten to fifteen artists.  The curator then selects between two and five pieces per person, thus offering artists the opportunity to showcase a series at a deeper level and making for an enriching experience for audiences as well.
Current PRC Individual or Institutional Membership required (valid through July 31, 2015). Renew or join at our website: www.prcboston.org/individual.htm.
Entry Fee: $40
Submission: Photographers may submit up to ten (10) images from a cohesive, exhibition-ready body of work, artist statement, and resume.

Juror Biography:
Kristen Gresh was appointed Estrellita and Yousuf Karsh Assistant Curator of Photographs at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), in January 2012. She was the curator of the recent exhibition at the MFA, She Who Tells a Story: Women Photographers from Iran and the Arab World, and is the author of the exhibition’s companion publication. Gresh first discovered the powerful work created by women from this region while living abroad for 15 years, teaching history of photography at the Ecole du Louvre, Wells College in Paris and at the American University of Cairo.
Gresh was also a contributor to the auction book and catalog The Photo Diary of John G. Morris (2010) and to the books On Display: Visual Politics, Material Culture, and Public Education (forthcoming), and Getting the Picture: The History & Visual Culture of the News (2015). Her Ph.D. dissertation from the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales was titled, “The Family of Man: A Critical History of an American Photographic Exhibition,” parts of which have been published in the academic journals Etudes Photographiques and History of Photography. Gresh recently juried the 2015 Wheaton Biennial: Photography Beyond the Frame (February 27 - April 10, 2015) at Wheaton College.
