The first #ArtistsxArtists collaboration is a striking cartoon by Chinese dissident cartoonist  Badiucao, who lives in self-exile in Australia, and Italian cartoonist Gianluca Costantini. The work highlights pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong and their struggle to protect free expression in Hong Kong.

 

TWO ARTISTS. TWO ARTWORKS. ONE MESSAGE: DEFEND ARTISTS AND ARTISTIC FREEDOM.

#ArtistsxArtists pairs established or well-known artists with artists at risk, within and across disciplines, to raise awareness about challenges to artistic freedom and about the work of threatened artists. The initiative encourages artists to collaborate and build relationships in support of artistic free expression.
