Contemporary Practice

Contemporary Practice is a unique opportunity for undergraduate photography students in Texas that seeks to highlight emerging artists with varied approaches to the medium from educational institutions across the state. Juried by the Exhibitions Team of the Houston Center for Photography, this exhibit gives students the chance to regionally interface with their peers and to gain valuable experience exhibiting their work. Ultimately, Contemporary Practice aims to highlight the diversity of contemporary photography today—from photography’s rich traditions to new, cross-disciplinary art forms.
