Lot Essay

Founded in 2016, Migrate Art believes that art can change the world. In collaboration with many of the world’s leading contemporary artists, the social enterprise’s projects support displaced and homeless communities worldwide. For ‘Scorched Earth’, Migrate Art presents a collection of new works created in direct response to the widespread burning of crop fields in Iraqi Kurdistan. Deliberately set to be intimidating and destructive, the fires have devastated crop lands, impacted revenues, and threatened food security across the region. To memorialise the catastrophe, Migrate Art produced a paint made from ash collected from the burnt fields. Participating artists incorporated the pigment into a series of works made in response to this humanitarian and ecological disaster. Christie’s is proud to support Migrate Art and its continued dedication to humanitarian needs around the world. Proceeds from this sale will be divided between Migrate Art and its three charity partners: RefuAid, Refugee Community Kitchen, and The Lotus Flower, whose work supports those impacted by homelessness and the global refugee crisis.

Migrate is a restricted fund under the auspices of Prism the Gift Fund, registered charity no 1099682.
