PhotoNOLA partners with venues throughout New Orleans who are interested in hosting photography shows in December. We accept listings from galleries, museums and alternative venues who have arranged photo-based exhibitions in conjunction with the festival. We also work with venues who would like to be paired with artists, coordinating exhibitions that are an appropriate fit for their spaces.
Please note when planning exhibitions that festival dates are December 8-12, 2021, with most exhibits running the entire month of December.
Want to host an exhibition at your venue?
If you’d like to participate as an exhibition venue but don’t have an artist lined up, please complete our Venues Seeking Artists Form. We will work to find an artist best suited to your space based on the information you provide. If matched, we will put you in direct contact with the artist. For the best chance at being paired with an artist, please apply no later than September 20, 2021
Already hosting an exhibition in December?
If your venue has already partnered with an artist(s) to host a photo-based exhibition during the duration of PhotoNOLA, please submit the information using our Exhibitions Listings Form for inclusion on our 2021 PhotoNOLA Exhibitions map.
The deadline to apply to be featured on our map is October 18 , 2021. We will accept late listings with a $50 fee until November 22 , 2021. Late listings may not be featured on the map, but will be listed online.
