In the days after the Calais Jungle was demolished in 2016 Simon Butler, founder of refugee charity Migrate Art, gathered the remaining crayons and pencils from the site of the old school, with those pencils and our support he created MULTICOLOUR.
Many of the world’s leading artists have created works using the pencils salvaged from the camp, formerly home to a community of approximately 10,000 refugees. These works will be on view in a dedicated exhibition in March 2019 at 9 Cork Street, London prior to being sold as part of Phillips’ ‘New Now’ sale on the 11 April.
Artists include: Anish Kapoor / Annie Kevans / Annie Morris / Chantal Joffe / Conor Harrington / Conrad Shawcross / Edmund De Waal / Gary Hume / Idris Khan / Jeremy Deller / Jonathan Yeo / Keith Coventry / Kevin Francis Gray / Mark Wallinger / Maggi Hambling / Michael Craig-Martin / Nari Ward / Paola Pivi / Pejac / Rachel Whiteread / Raqib Shaw / Richard Deacon / Richard Woods / Robert Montgomery / Ron Arad / Sara Shamma / Sean Scully / Swoon / The Connor Brothers / Zhang Huan / Yahon Chang
