About the exposition
This multimedia exposition will further explore linkages between the arts and human rights and the manifesto developed through the Arts and Human Rights Project. It will include works from original project participants such as video of dance, opera, and statements by participating artists, academics, and activists, as well as visual arts pieces, and photographs of art.
Throughout the two weeks of the exposition there will be live events (academic discussions, artist talks, socially engaged dance and music performances and art making) to highlight diverse perspectives and approaches to building positive relations between the arts and human rights.
A special invitation is extended to artists aged 35 or younger to join the conversation by submitting visual art works on the theme of Art and Human Rights. Emergent Art Space will select up to 30 artists’ works to include in a virtual exhibition on their website and in the live exposition in Montreal.
Deadline to apply is April 1, 2023!
