The Evening

The art world is coming together to create transformational change in the lives of women survivors of war. Join Women for Women International for an exclusive evening of installation, performance and fundraising – all to raise vital funds to support women survivors of war and conflict. 

She Inspires Art will raise money for two regions where our help is needed most. In Nigeria, we want to help women affected by extreme poverty and rising instability particularly in the north of the country. In Northern Iraq, we must support Syrian women refugees and internally displaced Iraqi women to help them recover from the trauma of conflict, loss and displacement.
Upon arrival, guests will be guided through a new performance from contemporary artist Amanda Coogan and then step into an installation by Japan’s leading multi-disciplinary artist Kohei Nawa for a drinks reception with canapés from Chef Yoshihiro Murata and Chef Daisuke Hayashi. 

Guests will dine in the exquisite Bonhams Sale Room, and will be treated to an exclusive performance and a live auction of select artworks and once-in-a-lifetime lot experiences, including pieces from Etel Adnan, Zaha Hadid, Idris Khan, Sevan Bıçakçı, George Shaw, Massimo Izzo, Kevin Francis Gray, Zhu Jinshi and Fabienne Verdier. All lots are available to bid on Artsy until 15 September - click here to view the auction lots and place bids
