The Black Lives Matter Movement has incited plenty of difficult—yet necessary—conversations abroad and at a local level. Passing the year’s halfway point, we’re seeing these conversations continue through initiatives, discussions and displays of solidarity from communities directly affected as well as from allies.
A more recent show of support comes in the form of online art sale, Printing in Solidarity, where all proceeds go to Aboriginal Legal Service and Children’s Ground, two organisations whose key mission is to improve the lives of First Nations People.
Prints include reproductions of photographs, paintings, drawings and collages on fine art paper from a grip of notable Australian artists such as Anu Kumar, Ben Clement, Bryce Doctor, Stanislava Pinchuk (FKA Miso) and Zaiba Khan.
All prints on sale come in at $100 to $150—a modest price and perfect opportunity to bring some life to those walls you’ll be staring at for the good part of 2020. There are also several one-off original works available ranging from around $100 up to $700.
The fundraiser comes from rising Sydney artist, Hugh Van Schaick, whose work deals with strength, weakness, family and youth, and is included in the Printing in Solidarity catalogue.
Works from Printing in Solidarity are available until Tuesday 1 September. Join in on the conversation and help in raising awareness here.
