 “The Only Thing That Is Constant Is Change.” Heraclitus 

Change and transformation is the only thing we cannot avoid. We live in a world that is transforming even faster than ever in many different ways, either positive or negative. Therefore, our society is and has been transformed in many ways as a result of:

        • globalization
        • wave of immigration, both voluntary and involuntary
        • environmental transformation
        • human rights transformation (including racial inequality, feminist movement, and LGBT social movements)

Artists of all career levels are welcome to show all kinds of social and political transformations you’re witnessing or taking part in.


Selected artists (from each category) will be invited to participate in the visual art exhibition “Transformation” 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.
