Art Competition TRANSFORMATION: BEAUTY
"The sun is new each day." - Heraclitus
The meaning of visual beauty has been different in different cultures and geography. It is also based on human experience and history; and it is still transforming. You are invited to show this transformation of beauty: are there elements of Beauty that are universal and eternal for us as humans? Or is the concept of Beauty a subjective concept?
Beauty has been a big factor in visual arts, historically. The transformation of how to perceive and value Beauty has affected what we see as contemporary art all around the world. The factors influencing the notion and comprehension of Beauty are:
- Aesthetic and Classical Beauty
- Fashion Beauty
- Pop Culture Beauty
- Beauty in different cultures currently and historically
- Conceptual Beauty versus Visual Beauty
Selected artists (from each category) will be invited to participate in the visual art exhibition “Transformation” to take place in Winter 2017-2018, Gallery MC, New York. The project features selected artworks in three categories: Social Transformation, Personal Transformation, Beauty Transformation. The finalists will have an opportunity to give an artist talk, be interviewed and/or featured on the RE:ARTISTE's website and social media networks.
