14 December Through 20 December
LOTS CLOSE INDEPENDENTLY AT ONE-MINUTE INTERVALS
Protect ARTsakh, a charity art auction for Artsakh, presents 78 lots by 60 multidisciplinary artists from four continents - featuring paintings, photography, sculpture, illustration, textile and even jewelry. All proceeds will go towards those impacted by the current situation in Artsakh (otherwise known as Nagorno-Karabakh).
Organised by Lara Arslanian (Belgium), Garabed Bardakjian (Lebanon) and Sarine Semerjian (Syria), and in patronage with the Arslanian Foundation, this auction has the objective of raising funds for the ongoing humanitarian relief efforts towards the Armenian families who recently fled the Caucasus region of Artsakh following its handover to Azerbaijan. Beyond the immediate financial relief, we also hope this charity art auction will raise awareness of the dire situation in Armenia and Artsakh.
The story of Armenians is one of survival and resilience, punctuated by terrible tragedies but also great triumphs spanning over their 3,500 years of history. By offering a unique selection of works highlighting unique talents of artists from Armenia and beyond, we wish to highlight the vibrant Armenian art scene but also elevate artists from around the world using their talents to give a voice to the voiceless.
