Photographers and artists are invited to apply for participation in the 2008 edition of the URBAN SPACE exhibition. Today, Thursday February 28, 2008, another URBANSPACE exhibition is opening at the Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural Center in Manhattan, New York City.

URBAN SPACE is an international traveling exhibition for artists and photographers. Focusing on the aesthetics of large urban centers as a theme, URBAN SPACE unites internationally selected works of photography and is hosted in the virtual galleries of participatory art platform http://www.wooloo.org as well as at selected galleries.
The first edition of URBAN SPACE -- a projection from over 23 different countries -- was first premiered in Rio de Janeiro at the renowned media arts foundation, Oi Futuro in July 2007. Simultaneous projections were also made in New Life Shop, the Berlin headquarters of WOOLOO.ORG. These projections have since been screened at several exhibitions and festivals including: ECCO during Brasilia's FotoArte, Sao Paulo's Galeria Vermelho, as well as showings during Fotopub07 in Slovenia.
The 2008 edition of URBANSPACE is curated around the theme of "Urban Communities" and looks to examine the diverse formation of local communities, informal situations and other site-specific representations of contemporary urban existence. Anonymity. Survival. Decadence. Defiance.
Submitted works may include photographic documentation of performances and site-specific actions, digital interventions as well as traditional film photography.
