Time The Brain Tumour Charity 6 April to 15 April 2023 Business Design Centre 52 Upper Street London N1 0QH
Time is an art exhibition that aims to capture what it means to be part of the brain tumour community – from 6 April to 15 April 2023 at the Business Design Centre in Islington. Run by, and in aid of, The Brain Tumour Charity, works from over 130 artists exhibited at the 10-day exhibition will be donated by the brain tumour community as well as well known, established artists from around the world, that are connected to the charity. The affordable artworks will be auctioned on an online auction website during the exhibition for purchase, as well as a small number going to a live auction at the end of the event.
The exhibition will feature photographs, illustrations, paintings, scans and sculptures submitted by the community from as far wide as Tel Aviv, Canada, New York and Los Angeles, to help tell the stories of those affected by a brain tumour, as well as artwork from established artists such as Opake, Nicholas Kontaxis, David Shrigley and Stony and celebrities to help raise awareness of our mission to defeat brain tumours.
Antonio Russo aka Stony will be exhibited at Time. Multi-award-winning artist Stony sadly passed away in June 2022 year following three-year battle with a brain tumour. February 2019, he was diagnosed with a glioblastoma grade 4 brain tumour and underwent two surgeries, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, immunotherapy, and participated in a clinical trial.
During this time, he raised money for The Brain Tumour Charity, a charity very close to him after his dad passed away from the same type of Brain Tumour in 2007. Stony’s work has garnered him a worldwide following and he is represented by Quantus Gallery. “Stony was heavily inspired by his life and family and particularly, in recent years, his battle with cancer. This was a very close cause to his heart, due to his father’s passing of the same disease in 2007. Before Stony’s passing in 2022 he had already started raising money for The Brain Tumour Charity’, through the sales of some of his works and through his restaurant.
“He lived by the motto “You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough” and continued to create art until he passed in June 2022.” – Antonio Russo Art
Exhibiting artwork will showcase long-established artists, up and coming names and supporters of The Brain Tumour Charity – a hugely collaborative undertaking.
Hannah Gibson, an artist specialising in glass sculpture inspired by her university geology background, will be showcasing a piece entitled Recycling Narratives Time & Tide Wait for None. Hannah said she is supporting the exhibition because: “It is a project very, very close to my heart. The work The Brain Tumour Charity does is exceptional. An incredible Team of people working together tirelessly. My piece Recycling Narratives, Time & Tide Wait for None was made in response to the Exhibition’s title, Time. Time waits for No One.”
Gina Almond, Director of fundraising and Marketing at The Brain Tumour Charity, said: “Time will be a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the creativity of our community and raise vital funds for the work we do.”
