Critical Mass 2010

March 3 – 25, 2011
Juror: Todd Hido


The aim of Photolucida’s Critical Mass program is to give exposure to emerging and mid-career photographers across the globe. In 2010, 552 artists entered their work for the chance to be seen by over 200 professionals in the photography world. Curators, gallery directors, editors, and publishers juried the work of these artists, and through a truly democratic process, narrowed the field down to the Critical Mass TOP 50. Juror, Todd Hido, selected one image per artist to represent the artist’ projects. The exhibition will travel from Photo Center NW to Newspace Center for Photography in Portland, and RayKo Photo Center in San Francisco, furthering the mission of all four photography organizations to bring top emerging talent to the public.
