Hi All, The process of juried exhibitions is still a mystery to me, and I am curious if anyone has insights into the process of jurying a show. From my basic understanding, a juror, be it an artist or curator, views all the work (either in person or digitally), and selects a variety of pieces to build a cohesive yet diverse show of high quality. Of course this is subjective and any given juror will select different pieces. What I am wondering are more detailed aspects of the selection process. Is the juror made aware that several pieces belong to the same artist? Is the artist's name given? The title? Does this vary on the juror's preference in jurying? I'd imagine that these small details could have quite the effect on the selection. I have seen photographers get two or more pieces into a single show, some similar, some not. This is just fine, but I wonder about the behind the scenes. One thing I am wondering the most, for selfish reasons I suppose, is the importance of submitting pieces that work together. I don't necessarily stick to the same subject or style all the time. A certain body of work might work together, but I don't like being restricted to photographing the same kind of stuff the same way all the time. Do you think it hurts an entrant to submit pieces of varying styles? If the juror does know that the pieces belong to the same artist, will they view it as they would an uncohesive portfolio? From my point of view, it would simply be to include a range of my work to have a better chance, but I could see how this could potentially hurt my chances. Am I thinking too hard about this? This might be a lot of discussion for something that is so subjective. Maybe I should just submit whatever I like, no matter how different it is. In any case, if anyone has insights, I'd love to hear them. Thanks.
