Article 19

Collaborating with a group of amazing New Zealand artists, Amnesty is proud to bring you an incredible event and the opportunity to bid on the pieces. The exhibition features works from renowned artists such as Nigel Brown, Otis Frizell, Misery, TrustMe from Cut Collective, Cinzah Merkens, Tanya Blong and many more.

All proceeds go towards ensuring Amnesty International Aotearoa New Zealand can continue its work defending and promoting human rights both worldwide, in our region and here in New Zealand.

The theme ‘ARTicle 19’ stems directly from the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights article, ‘Everyone has the right to freedom of expression’. Proceeds raised from Amnesty’s exhibition will go to priority campaigns like Myanmar where the government regularly violates the human rights of peaceful critics in a myriad of ways, including torture, imprisonment and death.

Amnesty invites you to bid on the artwork in the week leading up to the event, or come along on the night to view and bid in person.

The event will be held 7 July 2010 at Shed 10 from 7-10pm.

Shed 10 is located at 90 Wellesley St
(Entrance 77 Cook St) in Auckland City.

C’mon folks, place a bid!
