theprintspace hosts exhibition produced entirely by their online community
LONDON, UK This November, East London photo gallery theprintspace in partnership with Lowepro will open its doors for SoShowMe III, an annual exhibition curated entirely from theprintspace’s social media interactions.
The colourful and exciting show celebrates a wide range of photographic styles by talented artists from around the world as well as a featuring a fine selection of home-grown talent. SoShowMe III is compiled through theprintspace’s monthly competitions on Facebook and Flickr, with themes for 2012 ranging from Rule Britannia for the Diamond Jubilee celebrations and World in preparation for the London 2012 Olympics. An ever-changing jury of acclaimed professional photographers including Rachell Smith,
Andrew Areoff and Christine Santa Ana, have shortlisted all of the photographs for theprintspace’s online community to then vote for their winners.
SoShowMe III provides up-and-coming photographers who rarely have chance to exhibit their work with the unique opportunity of seeing their pictures displayed in an East London gallery. Situated at the heart of buzzing Shoreditch and popular with photography lovers and artists, theprintspace gallery is the ideal stepping-stone to the international photography scene.
The fluid interaction between social media and gallery exhibition continues on opening night with a larger-than-life interactive wall of tweets, where visitors will share their opinions of the individual works of art on show. In collaboration with theprintspace’s long-standing partner Lowepro one of those tweets will win a prize including a place on a Photoshop course and a top-of-the-line Lowepro camera bag.
SoShowMe III opens at theprintspace gallery at 74 Kingsland Road on Thursday, 8 November from 7pm-9:30pm with drinks provided. The exhibition then continues from 9 to 30 November, Monday-Friday 9am-7pm. Admission free!
