Leading contemporary artists including Tracey Emin, Antony Gormley, Wolfgang Tillmans and Yinka Shonibare and many others have generously donated for an auction to raise money for those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.
The sale proceeds will be divided up equally among the surviving families by the RUGBY PORTOBELLO TRUST, a North Kensington-based charity which has been closely supporting the Grenfell residents since the fire in June.
Film producer Hamish and art consultant Katie Heller are the driving-forces behind ‘Art For Grenfell’, and over the past few months have been working with the artists to source works for the sale. They said: “The edifice of Grenfell Tower stands as a reminder of the terrible failure of society to look after its poorest people. No one should have had to suffer the trauma that these people have endured. It is only right that we should do all we can to help in any way that we can and the artists have responded with immense generosity and goodwill.”
