To Heal The World
An international online artistic reflection on mending the brokenness of our global family
15 June - 18 August, 2020
In today’s world we are all intricately connected and interdependent; an inescapable reality highlighted by the current spread and impact of the Coronavirus around the globe. What happens in one part of the world affects others far away. Humanity has become besieged by many ailments that continue to drag us down; injustices, racism, prejudice, hatred, exploitation, inequality, conflict and abuse. We need to redouble our efforts to counteract this wave of negativity and erosion of values by expressing how we can each make a positive impact in our social groups, communities, countries and ultimately, in the world. By joining together in this effort, we hope to create a momentum of peace, love and healing to redress the balance toward making our world more whole.
We profoundly believe that artists are natural change agents and can lead the way. This exhibition is a visual expression by artists about mending the brokenness of our global family, as well as of their desire to repair our world through art itself. Artwork was submitted through an open call to all artists globally for two or three-dimensional artwork representing the theme of the online exhibition.
119 qualifying artwork submissions were received through a global open call, and an independent jury selected 30 artworks for the exhibition with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Prizes awarded, plus an Honorable Mention, according to the following criteria:
-Interpretation and clarity of the theme to the viewer
-Creativity and originality of the depicted theme
-Quality of artistic composition and overall design based on the theme
