1 OPEN CALL | 2 ARTISTS SELECTED
1 EXHIBITION | 1 RESIDENCY IN ROME
Latent is the result of the meeting and collaboration between D.O.O.R and MATÈRIA, two Rome based institutions specialised in photography. Latent (an anagram for Talent) is an open call aimed at the discovery and the promotion of photographic research and production characterised by originality and innovation within the field of contemporary photography.
In the current photographic landscape too many talents are lying hidden, submerged; silently and restlessly waiting to be discovered. This open call aims to facilitate the manifestation of outstanding international talent through a month-long exhibition and residency programme in the Italian capital.
The open call has no age or nationality requirements and is open to all artists working with the photographic medium. We strongly encourage experimentation, the use of traditional and contemporary approaches, innovation, and the dialogue between photography and other artistic mediums.
Two artists will be selected to take part in a month long exhibition at Matèria, set to open on February 2018. The overall winner will be awarded a two-week artist residency in Rome. The award will allow the selected artist to work towards the creation of a new body of work.
Latent is supported by Rea Academy.
