This spring, artists from around the globe will donate their work to heART & SOUL, the second biannual auction in aid of Arms Around The Child, a charity that provides children in Africa and India, who are directly or indirectly affected by HIV/AIDS, orphaned, abandoned or abused, with much-­‐needed homes, safety, education, healthcare and community.

Ann-­‐Marie James, Andrew Logan, Ben Summers, Carsten Höller, Chrissy Hynde, David Byrne, David Shrigley, Duke Riley, Jamie Reid, Paul Broomfield, Stuart Semple, Zak Ove and Zandra Rhodes, are amongst the artists whose work will be brought together for the auction,

Co-­‐curated by Bakul Patki, Lee Sharrock and Peter Wells-­‐Thorpe, with special guest curator Neneh Cherry, the event will raise funds to help complete Arms Around The Child’s new home in Jaipur, India, and builds on the success of the charity’s inaugural auction, which enabled the home’s foundations to be laid.

“Neneh Cherry is an iconic artist, with an enduring influence on popular culture, who has brought together art and music in a unique way over a career spanning more than three decades. As such, and as a long-­‐term supporter of the charity, we are delighted that she is joining us as guest curator of heART & SOUL.”
