The Myth of Beauty

The Myth of Beauty

This Deadline Expired: Sunday, September 19, 2021

The true nature of beauty has been one of the most highly debated concepts in philosophy. Can beauty be defined by objective qualities, or is it a subjective experience? Order, proportion, and symmetry as some would argue? Or, more abstractly, a sight that evokes deep love and desire?

The arts are inseparably linked to the exploration of beauty and aesthetics. Many artists are driven by the quest to capture or create works of great beauty, or conversely motivated by a desire to challenge or dismantle the conventions of beauty.

Manifold Global invites artists of all backgrounds and mediums to submit artwork related to or exploring the theme The Myth of Beauty.
