DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: 15th DECEMBER  2015

A juried international exhibition and first Queer/LGBT show ever staged at Photo LA. Round Hole, Square Peg 2 is an on-going search for new LGBTQ visual archetypes. 30 emerging and mid-career artists selected from an international competition will be presented in the Artists Corner booth at Photo LA. An invitational, curated Wall of Fame featuring current top photographers will form a special part of the exhibition. Now in its 25th year, Photo LA – from 21-24 January 2016 – is one of the longest-running fine art fairs in the USA.

After Photo LA, the exhibition will open at the Artists Corner Gallery in Hollywood, California on Saturday, 6th February 2016 from 7-10p. The gallery’s opening night reception will be a fundraising auction-party for The Trevor Project: the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to (LGBTQ) young people. Tickets are $40 and will be obtainable through Eventbright. Celebrity-driven art works on auction will be available for viewing and bidding at handbid.com. Auction winners will be notified by phone and e-mail.
