Freedom from Torture’s 2011 Art Auction sees leading visual artists unite to raise funds to support the organisation’s work with survivors of torture, the vast majority of whom have fled countries all over the world seeking refuge and protection in the UK.
Antony Gormley, Jake & Dinos Chapman, Paula Rego, Cornelia Parker, Gavin Turk, Stuart Semple, Gordon Cheung, Joe Tilson, Julian Opie, Gillian Ayres, Dexter Dalwood, Sam Taylor-Wood, Mark Quinn, Ian Davenport, Maya Hewitt, Ron Mueck, Idris Khan and Michael Craig Martin are among a host of over 60 leading contemporary artists who have donated works to be part of this extraordinary auction and Edmund de Waal and Jake and Dinos Chapman have created new works specifically for this auction.
During this coming week, 23- 28th November, there will also be further artistic activity taking place – visit here for more updates.
