For the past year, unprecedented challenges have exposed the deep fault lines of our society. Artists are so often at the forefront of movements for change seeking to repair these fault lines: truth-tellers grappling with society’s most prescient challenges, injustices, hopes, and joys. In response to this tragic and inspiring moment in history, we curated Artists in Support of Human Rights Watch 20 21: 41 works from established and emerging artists commenting on the current state of the world. A truly global, diverse group of artists deploy a variety of mediums, including photography, textile, sculpture, and more. Artists will receive their typical percentage, which they can choose to donate to Human Rights Watch.
