Lapsus is an International call for photographic and video projects curated by the Italian critic Marinella Paderni which invites artists to reflect on how “History of art shows us that many works were born of accidental 'mistakes' which occurred during the execution of a project, the taking of a picture or the recording of a video". More about the theme: http://www.celesteprize.com/lapsus2013/ Each project can contain up to 10 photographs and/or videos. By 30 March, 15 projects will be chosen by the selection panel. At the exhibition opening on 17 May 2013 the curator of Lapsus, Marinella Paderni, will choose the three winning projects and award € 2,000 prizes. Exhibition of the 15 projects will be at the fsmgallery, Florence and will run from 17 May to 15 June 2013.

Life is a passage, time moves on with or without us. Yet we are human and yearn for a sense of belonging and connection. These are the words that welcome us to the new exhibit YESTERYEAR, photographs by Alison Watt Jackson in the Museum of Art’s First Gallery, December 7 – 31, 2012. Among her black and white photographs are long unused ice skates dangling, a storefront frozen in time, and a Mexican gentleman resting between pool shots. Ms. Jackson manages to find diminutive visual moments in the world around her. The subjects are familiar, without being inconsequential, and prompt us to know the rest of the tale. The answers remain just out of reach so we are compelled to fabricate our own missive with Ms. Watt Jackson’s photographs our muse. 1010 Broad St. San Luis Obispo, CA 93401.
