Médecins Sans Frontières is the world’s leading independent organisation for medical humanitarian aid. At the core of Médecins Sans Frontières’ identity is a commitment to independence, neutrality and impartiality. They provide free medical care to people who need it. It doesn’t matter which country their patients are from, which religion they belong to, or what their political affiliations are – all that matters is they are human beings in need.
Curator and Web Designer Carla Teixeira teamed up with Photographer and Gallery Owner Philip Bell and Artist Carol Dance to put together a group show. The Exhibition showcases Australian work, giving it exposure to new audiences, whilst also raising money for humanitarian aid.
Some artists are donating 50% of their work and some artists are donating their work outright. All of the gallery support is voluntary and all profits go to Médecins Sans Frontières.
