Modern Dialect Photo Hunt Challenge 2: Abstraction

CMA Photo Hunt Abstract Challlenge

This next series of challenges is inspired by our new exhibition Modern Dialect: American Paintings from the John and Susan Horseman Collection, a striking exhibition showcasing American modernist paintings from some of the most respected American artists of the 1920s through the 1940s, and representing a wealth of styles and subjects.

Get inspired by the work of these American modernist masters, and respond with your take on the second challenge:

  • Capture something that reflects abstraction using William Zorach’s Interior and Exterior, painting as inspiration.
  • Tag your work on Instagram with #CMAPhotoHunt, and #abstract
  • For this assignment you have until Wednesday July 2, 2014.
  • Please note: images must be your own. Anyone in the world can participate.
  • Also be sure to fill out the form below, so we can contact you if your work is selected, and keep you up to date on new challenges.

We’ll select our favorites (based on the most creative entries, and ones that best represent the assignment), and your creation could grace the walls at Columbus Museum of Art in our 5th CMA Photo Hunt exhibition this fall.

CMA Photo Hunts are a digital complement to CMA collections and exhibitions, give participants an opportunity to flex their creativity, be inspired by works or themes in Columbus Museum of Art exhibitions or collections, and respond to creative challenges with their own visual take. Since our Photo Hunts began we have received more than 5,000 submissions from hundreds of photographers from Seattle to Ohio to Paris to Russia. With our first exhibition in 2012, we were first museum in the world to present a curated, crowdsourced installation based on the popular photo sharing app Instagram. Read more about the inception of the Photo Hunt project in stories in The Columbus Dispatch, Art Daily, and Clic France, and Columbus Alive, and see all the photos submitted so far in the CMA Photo Hunt Gallery.

Watch for additional biweekly Photo Hunt assignments here on our blog, and on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
