Lost Girls an exhibition to benefit War Child
Join us online here via Artsy from 25th September - 30th October and at Cork Street 10th - 14th October for a special exhibition to benefit War Child, including works by Peter Howson, Ai Wei Wei, Tracey Moffatt, Penny Slinger, and many more.
Presented by War Child, conceived, created and curated by InFems Art Collective, and hosted by Flowers Gallery - LOST GIRLS exhibition aims to empower through a lens of resilience rather than victimhood.
Nearly 90 million girls – or 1 in 5 globally – are living in conflict zones, with devastating impacts on their health, wellbeing, and future opportunities. Many of these girls are exposed to exploitation, abuse, and resort to dangerous means to support their families' survival. War Child creates safe spaces for children, providing them with opportunities to play, learn, and access psychological support.
Running during London Frieze Week and the UN International Day of the Girl Child, LOST GIRLS aims to raise vital funds for War Child's work whilst boldly addressing the profound challenges faced by girls affected by war.
InFems' selection of artists and curators for LOST GIRLS is purposeful, including individuals who have deep and personal connections with refugee communities, PTSD, or come from areas where War Child provides urgent care and support.
Flowers Gallery are collaborating with War Child once again, after the famed charity exhibition 'Little Pieces from Big Stars' in 1994. LOST GIRLS enables the art world to fundraise for War Child through a physical exhibition at Flowers Gallery, Cork Street, and online via Artsy.
Flowers Gallery is facilitating the sale on War Child’s behalf both in its Cork Street gallery and on its Artsy platform and has waived commission on all sales to War Child. All the artists involved are donating between 55% to 100% of their sale to support War Child's work. InFems Art Collective have given their time pro bono to curate and develop this project.
