Over 150 original artworks from established and emerging artists are to be sold to raise money for Maggie’s Centres this autumn.
Taking place at One Poultry in the City of London, all proceeds will be donated to the charity, which aims to support those affected by cancer.
Pieces are themed around the 'joy of living', with artwork being generously donated by a range of creative talent, including designers Jasper Morrison, Fredrikson Stallard, Barber & Osgerby, Tom Dixon, Ross Lovegrove, Eley Kishimoto and Ilse Crawford; architects John Pawson, Ivan Harbour and Steven Holl; jewellery designers Hannah Martin and Jade Jagger; and artists Daniel Eatock, Rolf Sachs and Jake & Dinos Chapman.
Although the work will be signed, it will be displayed anonymously until the piece has been purchased in order for buyers to fall in love with the art itself, not the name behind it.
Design author and longtime supporter of Maggie's, Max Fraser explains, “After a very personal, emotional journey as I supported my mother through her 6-year battle with cancer, I vowed to contribute in some way to mankind’s fight against this disease. Maggie’s recognises that building an atmosphere of calm and celebrating a good quality of life are immensely beneficial to patients, and I know that my mother would have benefited so positively from its services."
Why not grab yourself some great art whilst doing some good?
Joy of Living will be exhibited from 5 – 10 September 2017 and will open to the public from 10am – 7pm daily.
All artwork will be available to view and bid for online at maggiescentres.org/joyofliving and on location from 5 September 2017.
