Open Call: What We Wore x Tate
How do you represent yourself? As part of Cultural Canvas, you are invited to contribute your photographs to a live display. We want to see photos which showcase young people’s attitudes to self-representation in three different social spaces:
- Home eg. in your house, a friends flat, student halls
- On the street eg. out and about or going from a to b
- Augmented eg. using a selfie filter or with a face swap
A selection of submissions will be displayed alongside a map of young people’s style, curated by Nina Manandhar using images from her project What We Wore.
