Acclaimed German artist, Wolfgang Tillmans, is selling posters featuring his original photographs for £50 GBP (approx. $61 USD) to support night clubs, music venues, and art spaces impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. His contribution to the project is a still life taken from his studio — the last picture he printed in his workspace before it was forced to close because of lockdown measures.

Tillmans also enlisted 40 international artists including Betty Tompkins, Mark Leckey, and Andreas Gursky to help with the initiative as part of the 2020 Solidarity fundraising campaign. Posters for purchase include Marlene Dumas’s portrait of James Baldwin to benefit the Siegessäule magazine in Berlin, Gillian Wearing’s All I Ever Wanted Was Love print to support the nightclub Renate, as well as Mark Leckey’s print titled A Changeling Can Change to help the multi-purpose arts space ACUD MACHT NEU in Berlin.

The artist is paying for the printing and shipping costs of the posters so that 100% of the proceeds can help the threatened businesses. “There are many places that may not get help or bailed out because they are informal places, in culture, nightlife, and music. I feel an urgency to do something so they don’t have to close down permanently,” said Tillmans to The Guardian.

View the posters available for purchase and their respective beneficiaries by visiting Between Bridges’ website.

Elsewhere in art, Avenue des Arts is spotlighting works by Brett Crawford, Matt Gondek, and more as part of a virtual exhibition called “Without Warning.”

Over forty international artists come together to design one poster each, which can be offered on different crowdfunding sites as a reward for donations. 2020Solidarity is a Between Bridges project aimed at helping cultural and music venues, community projects, independent spaces and publications that are existentially threatened by the current crisis. Between Bridges does not sell these posters, instead we organise, print and distribute them to organisations in need free of charge. The posters can then be included in many different crowdfunding and other campaigns. The posters will be listed as a reward for a 50€ / £50 / $50 donation and are size A2 (59.4 x 42 cm / 23.4 x 16.5 in). An unlimited edition, only available for a limited period of time. Mail out / picking up begins after postal services have returned back to normal. See all posters on the Between Bridges website – link in bio. —-_____—- If you are an organisation, charity or a business working in the cultural or social sector and want to participate, please contact Between Bridges: 2020Solidarity@betweenbridges.net —___— #2020solidarity #marlenedumas #markleckey #nicoleeisenman #25/34photographers #bettytompkins #wolfgangtillmans #sabelomlangeni #karolradziszewski #christopherwool #jochenlempert
