Submit Photographs to Light Work’s TOO HARD TO KEEP (SYRACUSE)

Photography Submissions Due February 22 To Light Work

Too Hard to Keep (Syracuse) is a communal archival installation for photographs, photo-objects, and digital files to exist when they are too difficult to destroy yet remain too hard or painful to hold on to.

Submissions will be accepted by February 22, 2013 for the exhibition that runs April 4 through May 31, 2013

The idea for the show started in 2010 by Chicago-based artist Jason Lazarus.  He initiated a growing archive of photos deemed “too hard to keep.” T.H.T.K. (Too Hard to Keep).

Participants have the option to show the photographs shown freely with other photos in the archive, or to have them displayed face down, which adds a charged significance to each object.

Site-specific installations will develop out of this expanding collection. With T.H.T.K. (Syracuse) Jason Lazarus will shares part of the larger archive alongside anonymous local submissions in a carefully considered installation at the Light Work gallery in Upstate New York.

The exhibition will be on view April 4 – May 31, 2013. A reception will be held April 4 from 5-7 pm, with a gallery talk from the artist at 5pm.
