Over a hundred leading artists – among them David Hockney, Anthony Caro, Damien Hirst, Anish Kapoor and Tracey Emin – have joined together to fight against the proposed cuts in government funding of the arts.
The campaign launches today with the release of this new animation by artist David Shrigley highlighting the effect of the funding cuts.
Each week the work of a different artist, created in response to the campaign, will be released. Jeremy Deller and Mark Wallinger will present the next project.
