Calling all photographers, amateur or professional, camera phones, digital SLR’s or film! We invite you to contribute your photographs for our special participatory exhibition, ‘Out of Control’, to celebrate the 2018 Auckland Festival of Photography.
The theme for this year’s Auckland Festival of Photography is Control.
Out of Control is the Depot’s photographic response to a world over-burdened by imperatives which cause us to conform in a multiplicity of demeaning and debilitating ways.
In this increasingly structured and regulated world, we have come to regard control as inescapable, even desirable. The concept of being ‘out of control’ is often fraught with images that threaten an order preferable to unknown alternatives. Opportunities to liberate the creative side of ourselves are rare; even in the gallery, the crucible of creativity, exhibitions require themes, conditions and standards.
There are no restrictions on photographic technique, size, subject matter – we invite you to surprise, delight, horrify, puzzle, challenge, amuse or move the Depot Artspace community with your photos. Break the bonds of conformity, predictability, and the usual components of control – the only limit is your imagination!
- Print your photographs and deliver them to Depot Artspace (28 Clarence St Devonport, Auckland 0624) by 29 May 3pm. There is a $10.00 charge to enter work/s to this exhibition (standard administrative cost per exhibiting artist regardless of the number of photos entered). No late submissions will be considered for exhibition.
- Photographs don’t need to be framed. Ensure that the photographs include your name and contact details on the back. Photographs in this exhibition will not be for sale.
- Images will be on display as part of the Out of Control exhibition between Sat 2 June- Wednesday 20 June. You are welcome to join us for the opening event, Friday 1 June, 5:30 – 7:30pm.
- After completion of the exhibition you need to pick up your photos at the Depot on Thursday 21 June (10 am-4.30 pm). Depot Artspace has no storage facilities and takes no responsibility for the works after this date.

Depot Galleries comprise two exhibition spaces – Main Gallery and The Art Room.
Each spring the Depot Artspace publishes an exhibition call-out for the following year. Currently, all spaces in the Main Gallery are booked to the end of 2018, but as part of our continued effort to provide exhibition opportunities for our members, we have created The Art Room which artists may exhibit in year-round. Members may apply to exhibit in The Art Room for a 3 month period through a simple application process.
Please ensure you thoroughly read the criteria and conditions for exhibiting at the Depot before applying. If you are not yet a member please fill out the membership form as part of your application. You can download an application form HERE and email it to our Gallery Coordinator Natali Rojas.
