Article: Invited Artist at The View Magazine's Fine Art Auction

Detail of Richard Spare's artwork 'Iris Spring'

Invited Artist at The View Magazine's Fine Art Auction

Richard is proud to be taking part in #IncarcerationNation, a virtual exhibition and silent online auction in aid of The View Magazine's Summer Issue, which focuses on the COVID-19 outbreak and how it has affected some of the most vulnerable women in society.⁣

"I’m proud to step up and support The View Magazine at this difficult time. Now more than ever it is crucial in giving women prisoners a voice, in providing them with a source of specific information, as well as offering them an opportunity for paid artistic endeavours and the enhancement of self-worth. I hope the auction will be a huge success in raising awareness of their complex issues, as well as the impossible situations in which many women in our society find themselves. Please support this ground-breaking Incarceration Nation Auction.’

⁣In the words of fellow exhibitor Sir Anish Kapoor CBE RA "I’m proud to support The View Magazine, and the crucial role it plays in giving women prisoners the dignity of a platform to express themselves and enabling an audience to hear their voices and witness their creative spirit. Black and white thinking enables us all too easily to shut out the really painful and difficult stories that can’t be tolerated, and pushes what are more often than not the most vulnerable out of sight and mind. Their voices should and must be heard by us."


Online Auction and Virtual Exhibition: 21st May - 31st May

Congratulations to The View and all involved as #IncarcerationNation sold out raising £20,000 for the CIC. This amount smashed the initial target of £6k required to publish the summer edition of The View Magazine after their funding was withdrawn due to COVID-19.
