Be Hip

When: Fri., Aug. 5 2011

Hey there cool kids. Finish your ironic conversations about the newest popular trend, hop on your custom painted fixed-gear bicycles, and take part in every hipster’s favorite pastime: basking in the glory of your own creativity. For their Be Hip show, which actually has nothing to do with hipsters, Imaging Arts Gallery has chosen the best of the submitted pictures submitters have taken using their iPhone’s $1.99 Hipstamatic app. With pictures digitally aged by the phone application, even the most mundane photo of a crumbled PBR can comes out looking like an artsy print ready for MOMA. Imaging Arts will do just that when they cover a wall of their studio with the best hipstamatic photographs. Sulking because your black and white of a homeless guy passed out on a park bench didn’t make the wall? Don’t worry, the gallery will be accepting unlimited free submissions on their Tumblr site as long as the show is up. Like your handlebar mustache, the show will be constantly growing and changing as new photographs are submitted.
