Call for Artists: TRANSFORMATION






“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. We would like to see artworks motivated by any kind of transformations we all experience:  

  • Globalization
  • Wave of immigration, both voluntary and involuntary
  • Environment
  • Human rights transformation (including racial inequality, feminist movements, LGBTG social movements, and more)
  • Beauty transformation related to social expectations, culture, aging, and more
  • Personal transformation - psychological and beyond 

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


A winner gets a week long art residency: a studio and a fully furnished bedroom to stay while working at the residency. Free. 

Twenty-five selected artists will be invited to participate in the visual art exhibition “Transformation” in December 2018, Gallery MC, New York.  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.
