We have reached the deadline for the Call For Art!


EMERGENT ART SPACE is no longer accepting submissions for the international exhibition series on the theme TRANSLATIONS. Thank you to all the artists who contributed their work!


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?



First prize: $500 USD.

Five finalists: $200 USD.
