Concept of the Year is a response to traditional color forecasts. Instead of a trend, it is a prompt and an inspiration that addresses world events and meaningful markers in society. The 2021 Concept of the Year is Fuel on Water: a body of work from 55+ collaborators presented as a publication and a digital exhibition. Photos by Aaron Bernstein. Featured submissions by Edward Ubiera, Carter Oakley, Daniel Gritzer, and Declan Kearney.
