UNFINISHED WORK
A WHO-supported interdisciplinary arts project to benefit cancer research

PROJECTS









Unfinished Work 

is an arts project to benefit 
cancer research.




Cancer kills 8.2 million people every year worldwide,


many of whom are artists.




Playwrights,

musicians,


writers,


painters,


and coders.




Many of these artists leave unfinished works behind.





Paintings,

compositions,

sculptures,


scripts,


and programs.





















You could say the lives 
of these works ended with 
the lives of the artists.




















What if we could extend the life 
of the work, and help cancer research extend the lives of all?











Unfinished Work aims to pair these orphaned pieces with living artists who will “finish” these pieces in surprising ways.






For example, an unfinished novel 
could be finished by a composition.





An unfinished screenplay 
could be finished as an app.





An unfinished poem 
could be finished as a photograph.





These “finished” pieces will be displayed at an Unfinished Work gallery, and auctioned to benefit cancer research.





An interactive gallery will make the unfinished works available to visitors for research, or to try completing themselves.





And finally, we will launch a line 
of “finished works” featuring pieces that can be reproduced in small quantities and sold online, with all proceeds to cancer research.











The goal is not to add to the late artist’s body of work,




or to imagine how they might have 
completed their pieces.


Instead we hope to demonstrate that when we fight to eradicate cancer,




we fight to extend 
the act of creation.





We fight to extend beauty.






We fight to extend life.
