The Art at Work pavilion opened on the Place de la Nation in Central Ouagadougou on March 19, 2011, in the presence of the Ministry of Culture in Burkina Faso, Paul Dujardin, and architect David Adjaye. The timing coincided with the FESPACO film festival of Ouagadougou. Artist in residence Theo Eshetu (Ethiopia) produced a short video inspired by FESPACO, its audiences, and Burkina sculpture. At the end of the run, the pavilion was donated to the National Museum in Ouagadoudou.
