Sanctuary: Contemporary art and human rights (2002 – 2003)

GoMA exterior with bannersSanctuary was the first social justice programme that GoMA presented under the banner of ‘Contemporary art and human rights’. Ambitious in scale from the outset, Sanctuary marked a significant change in the GoMA programming and would influence work in the gallery beyond the social justice biennials.

There are some images from Sanctuary: Contemporary art and human rights over on flickr.
