ART AND COLOR AS AN INSTRUMENT OF SOCIAL TRANSFORMATION

Coloring the World Foundation (CTWF) is a non-profit organization founded by IAM OKUDA, a partnership between the artist Okuda San Miguel and Ink and Movement. CTWF contributes to the promotion of diversity and the improvement of the quality of life of people and communities by using art and color as an instrument of transformation and change. They also support the creation, dissemination, and promotion of emerging contemporary art.

Coloring the World Foundation understands art as a social transformation tool and seeks to actively participate in changing social initiatives through artistic, collaborative, and independent practices. Art is their way of delivering a message, their way of protesting through shapes, aesthetics, and color. An “artivism” of the first level.

This is where Okuda San Miguel’s values show up – beyond success and international recognition – standing by equality, diversity, and optimism. His work is full of color and symbolism capable of generating the vital social impact needed to promote change for everyone and by everyone, through the Foundation of which he is honorary president.

Coloring the World Foundation is the color of transformation, the color of change, and they encourage you to be part of their project.

Miami was the first stop.

Group exhibition: I DON'T WANNA BE, I AM

Visitors to SCOPE also could check out I DON’T WANNA BE, I AM, a rotating group exhibition curated by Ink and Movement (IAM) that explores the concept of identity bringing together a selection of artworks from Elian Chali, Franco Fasoli, Martí Sawe, Misterpiro, Nano4814, Okuda San Miguel, Sabek, Spok Brillor, and Sixe Paredes.

IAM is strongly committed to Coloring the World Foundation’s mission to use art and color as an instrument of social transformation, as well as to make visible emerging contemporary artists. The exhibition explores the concept of identity within the art scene and arises from the need to address new codes, new spaces, and new methods of interaction within the universe of contemporary creation.

 

Presentation of the Coloring the world Foundation

ART WITH PURPOSE: COLORS AS A TOOL FOR SOCIAL CHANGE

TALK: Art is not only an act of contemplation, it is also an act of change, of transformation. A transformation that begins in the public space, the place where all the great challenges we face together as a society are most clearly observed and where the artists seek for solutions side by side with the rest of the citizenry through color and creativity.

Date and time: Wednesday, Dec. 01 | 1-2 pm
