"PHOTOcentric" at Garrison Art Center, New York, Sep 13 - 28

September 10, 2014

Juror, Marvin Heiferman, an independent curator and writer, has selected works for the 7th annual "PHOTOcentric" exhibition to be held at the Garrison Art Center in Garrison, New York.  The exhibition will run September 13 - 28, 2014, with an opening reception with the artists on Saturday, September 13 from 5pm-7pm.    "To jury a photographic exhibition is both a risky proposition and an interesting opportunity. Instead of conceiving a presentation that sheds light on a perticular artist, theme or idea, you have to embrace serendipity," says Marvin.  He further notes that well over 1,000 images were submitted for this competition, of which he selected 50 for the exhibition.  Past jurors have included Malcolm Daniel, Alice Rose George, Harvey Stein, Stephen Shore, Larry Fink, Stephen Perloff, Elizabeth Opalenik and Robert Mann, Cig Harvey and Robin Rice.  This year's juror, Mr. Heiferman, has organized projects about photography for institutions that include the Museum of Modern Art, Smithsonian Institution, International Center of Photography, Whitney Museum of American Art, and the New Museum.  A contributing editor to Art in America, Heiferman has written for numerous publications, catalogs, monographs and magazines including The New York Times, Artforum, Aperture, and BOMB.  Hist most recent book is Photography Changes Everything (Aperture, 2012).  More information is available at http://www.garrisonartcenter.org .
