Nao Bustamante Transmodern is a festival of provocative works by cultural experimenters from Baltimore and the World. The artists of Transmodern defy traditional genres and embrace radical innovation through transmedia, clashes of organic vs. artificial intelligence, psychogeography, dislocation of consensus reality, real politic and collective cultural action.

The organizers promote / celebrate the diversity of experimental culture by highly representing artists from the following groups: women, ethnic minorities, gays and lesbians, the radical subculture.
