About

Antony Gormley, Quentin Blake, Edmund de Waal, Cornelia Parker and Jake & Dinos Chapman have joined more than 60 British-based artists to donate exclusive works for a major exhibition and auction in support of Freedom from Torture, the UK’s only charity dedicated to the rehabilitation and protection of survivors of torture.

The free public exhibition is open daily from 8 – 12 November at the Bargehouse on London’s Southbank, offering a unique opportunity to see these high profile artists exhibited together in an intimate setting. Further details of the exhibition are available at www.freedomfromtorture.org/art

All of the exhibited works will also be auctioned to raise funds for Freedom from Torture, with an online auction open from 26 October at www.lineundertorture.org

Artists featured in the exhibition and auction include Antony Gormley, Edmund de Waal, Cornelia Parker, Jake & Dinos Chapman, Stanley Donwood, Quentin Blake, Gillian Ayres, Ian Davenport, Kate Malone, Sir Howard Hodgkin, Jim Dine, David Nash, Julian Opie, and Michael Craig Martin.

Their works will be exhibited and auctioned alongside pieces by torture survivors whose rehabilitation has been supported by Freedom from Torture, and for whom art therapy has been a vital way to process and move on from their traumatic experiences.
