A digital exhibition in support of South Africa's Solidarity Fund

10 – 23 April 2020

Everard Read galleries presents Us - its second digital exhibition in support of South Africa's Solidarity Fund, established by President Cyril Ramaphosa in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

We are humbled and delighted that, with the help of our clients and artists, we raised ZAR1.4 million for the Solidarity Fund with our digital exhibition launched on 3 April – Staring Straight to the Future. As with that exhibition, 50% of proceeds from this new exhibition, after artist payments, will go directly to the Fund.

As the lockdown continues in South Africa and around the world, we hope these digital exhibitions will continue to harness the generosity of our communities and make a small contribution to protecting health workers at the front line and assisting those whose livelihoods have been disrupted by the pandemic.
