Artists rally for Grenfell survivors
ARTISTS Tracey Emin and Rachel Whiteread have donated work to an auction to benefit surviving residents of Grenfell Tower.
Art For Grenfell will take place at Sotheby’s in London on October 12. Others taking part include Tacita Dean, Sarah Lucas, Wolfgang Tillmans, Yinka Shonibare and Mark Wallinger.
Emin has donated 2015 neon work Loving You More, which is expected to fetch up to £35,000, while Whiteread has given a collage and pencil work, Open Door (2007). Lucas has donated her photographic self-portrait Eating A Banana (1990-2017).
At least 80 people died in the devastating blaze in London on June 14.
Film producer Hamish McAlpine and curator Katie Heller have organised the auction and Sotheby’s say proceeds will be divided equally among Grenfell survivors by a charity.
