A platform for young artists across the globe


We believe that the language of art has the power to communicate across geographic and cultural distances, to open new perspectives on our experience in the world,

to facilitate the understanding of experiences and traditions different from our own.

   Countries reached: 75 countries in
Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia, North and South America

Founded in 2012, Emergent Art Space is an international non-profit organization

based in San Francisco, California.

We welcome artists in all fields of visual arts, still in school or under 30.

"EAS in an international context is important because it suggests a broader perspective of the world. Each artist from various cultural backgrounds can bring up issues based on their own experiences."

"‚Ķit is important to think of art as a global language‚Ķ each artist from each culture translates their cultural experiences into the medium of ‚Äúart‚ÄĚ, which can be understood across cultures."
