Artists to Boycott Abu Dhabi’s Guggenheim Over Labor Rights

Artists and curators from around the world have signed a petition to boycott the Abu Dhabi-based Guggenheim Museum until the government of the United Arab Emirates and the Guggenheim Foundation can ensure the protection of laborers at the construction site.

The online petition, signed by more than 135 people, said they will refuse all cooperation with the Tourism Development & Investment Co. and the Guggenheim Foundation until they disclose working conditions at the site and guarantee that laborers will receive recruitment fees.
