Multicolour, Migrate Art’s new fundraising exhibition and auction will take place in London to raise money for those affected by the ongoing global refugee crisis.
Over twenty five of the most significant names in contemporary art, including Anish Kapoor, Rachel Whiteread, Michael Craig-Martin, Joana Vasconcelos and Raqib Shaw will create new works using pencils and crayons salvaged from the Calais Jungle refugee camp, formerly home to a community of approximately 10,000 refugees, and demolished in 2016.
These works will be on view in a dedicated exhibition in March 2019 in London prior to their sale in an auction at Phillips in early April.
If you would like to be one of the first people to see these new works and to stay up to date with the project’s progress, please register below.
“The Migrate Art auction is a very creative approach enabling people to help with a desperate worldwide problem”
– Rachel Whiteread
“Whether or not today’s refugees are fleeing from political or economical trouble, I identify with, and have great empathy for the sense of displacement they must feel. The only way I can express my true feelings is through my art – as a means of release and escapism – so I am happy to be contributing to the Migrate project in aid of this worthwhile cause”
– Raqib Shaw
