Labs New Artists III


Labs Gallery is pleased to announce the third edition of Labs New Artists exhibition, opening on July 11, 2019. This annual summer group show will feature work by twenty-five emerging, international photographers, unrepresented by a gallery or an agency, and selected from Red Hook Labs’ open call by a jury of industry leaders. 

Opening reception: July 11, 6-9 pm

On view July 11-28, 2019.

Open daily, 10 – 6 PM

Every year, Red Hook Labs invites emerging photographers to submit their work to an Open Call in order to scout extraordinary, diverse and visionary talent from all over the world. Selected artists gain industry recognition, career opportunities and international exposure through an intensive program following the show. To give the selected artists continued support, each of our jurors have agreed to mentor one of the artists for the year following the show. One artist will be chosen by the creative team at Dazed Magazine to shoot an editorial for their F/W issue.  After the opening in New York, Labs New Artists III will travel to Oslo and Milan.

The Labs New Artists exhibition extends our mission of giving opportunity to and supporting emerging artists through our print sales program. All proceeds from sales are split 50/50 between the Artists and Labs, with all Labs profits going to benefit our 501(c)3, the Red Hook Labs Education and Jobs Initiative, a non-profit that provides free photographic programming and career opportunities and youth programs at Red Hook Labs.
