The ARTISTS AT RISK PAVILIONArtists. Risks. Humans. Rights. with the support of UNESCO is a celebration of artists and cultural professionals who risk their lives on the frontlines of artistic freedom and human rights. An exhibition and discursive programme at the intersection of the arts and human rights, the AR Pavilion will feature art, discursive panels and networking events for and by residents, alumni, partners and those who stand in solidarity with Artists at Risk (AR), the global residency programme for artists at high risk.

This edition of the AR-Pavilion holds particular significance as it marks the 10th anniversary of Artists at Risk (AR). AR has relocated over 850 (principal) artists and art professionals together with over 300 hosting partners around the world in its first, intense decade.

The ARTISTS AT RISK PAVILION—Artists. Risks. Humans. Rights. is curated by Marita Muukkonen and Ivor Stodolsky, the co-directors of Artists at Risk (AR) and co-founders of Perpetuum Mobile (PM).
