2017 has been a taxing year. From the inauguration of a barbaric reality-tv star in the United States, to countless natural disasters, horrifying terrorist attacks in various forms, and a general feeling of global cultural division, it can often seem like we, as humans, are spiraling downward. But there have been elements of hope -- from large scale community organizing around the world, to the outpouring of aid.
A photographic meditation on the year feels aptly appropriate for Humble's next group show.
Show us your reflection on 2017. It can be abstract, "conceptual," or straightforward and representational. It can be grim or hopeful. We encourage showing us as much visualized frustration as optimism. Instead of a traditional roundup or "year in pictures," our curation, like previous shows, will take an open-ended approach.
The only requirement is that work must have been made after January 1, 2017.
