CALL FOR ENTRY: LOST II - BOOK COLLABORATION AWARD
Kris Graves Projects invites you to be part of our LOST II series of books.
In 2018, +KGP collaborated with ten artists to produce a series of publications named LOST. Each artist was tasked with producing a visual study of a city or place that they call home or have been working in throughout their career. Nineteen artists have been confirmed as collaborators for our upcoming LOST II series, and +KGP is now seeking one final artist to participate in the book collection. The artist selection process will be juried by Hamidah Glasgow, Executive Director, Center for Fine Art Photography, Fort Collins, CO.
