Initiated in 2010, the New Light exhibition scheme set out to be a platform for nurturing young local photographers as well as introducing new talents to the scene. Each year, a potential artist is selected through open call and provided with full support in debuting their solo exhibition at Lumenvisum. Previous New Light artists are: Clement Chan, Cheung Wai-lok, Dan Leung, Joan Leung and Ula Tsui.
New Light VII is now accepting proposals. The selected artist will be given Lumenvisum’s space for a solo exhibition for one month in June 2016. Emerging artists aged between 18 – 30 who have never had a solo exhibition at a professional gallery or art space and are committed to pursue a career in photography are welcome. Proposals should be submitted with the artist’s name, Hong Kong ID card copy, resume, artist’s statement and portfolio, delivered either by post or by hand to “Lumenvisum, L2-10 JCCAC, 30 Pak Tin Street, Shek Kip Mei, Kowloon, Hong Kong” by 6pm, Saturday, 31 October, 2015.
Submission is free of charge. All proposals will be reviewed by a panel of judges chaired by Lumenvisum’s Chairman. The accepted artist will be notified by November this year.
