Translations’ Emergent Art Space Call for Art
Translations’ Call for Art:
Emergent Art Space invites students and emerging artists to participate in an international exhibition series on the theme:
Trans-lating: to bring across, to transfer, to transport, to make understandable in another language, to make accessible to another culture.
Translating from one language to another, from one expressive medium to another.
Translations as a way to expand our understanding, to facilitate communication.
Translations as a pressing issue in contemporary society that is connected yet divided. Both globally and locally, in our communities and in our personal lives.
What is lost in translation and what is found?
