Jen Bekman Gallery is pleased to present Hey, Hot Shot! 2009 Second Edition, an exhibition featuring fifteen works from five photographers: Marisa Aragona, Leah Tepper Byrne, Alejandro Cartagena, Jessica Eaton, and Justin James King .
The gallery will hold an opening reception on Friday, March 5, 2010 from 6:00 p.m to 8:00 p.m. The show will be on view through Saturday, March 20th, 2010 at Jen Bekman Gallery, 6 Spring Street, New York, New York.
The photographers in this exhibition were selected from hundreds of submissions to Hey, Hot Shot!, the premier international photography competition. Twice a year, a distinguished panel of arts professionals chooses five artists for their unique contributions to photography and awards them with a group show at Jen Bekman Gallery. Since its inception five years ago, Hey, Hot Shot! has debuted over a hundred photographers, receiving critical acclaim from The New York Times, The New Yorker, Aperture, Art in America, PDN, and The Village Voice.
Gallery and Hey, Hot Shot! founder Jen Bekman says of this showcase:
"As Jen Bekman Projects grows and evolves, Hey, Hot Shot! plays an increasingly important role, affording us the opportunity not only to review work from ambitious photographers all over the world, but also the privilege of working with the best and brightest artists out there. This latest exhibition illustrates the uncompromising talent of the photographers and the diversity of their subjects and approaches, which have come to define Hot Shots past, present and future."
