Yoko donates artwork ‘Promise Piece II’ to Group Art Auction: Maggie’s Art of Hope at London Art Fair on 18 Jan

Maggie’s Art of Hope Auction – London Art Fair 2011

Maggie’s is the official charity partner for London Art Fair 2011 and is proud to present The Art of Hope.

Introducing Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centres, official charity partner for London Art Fair 2011

“Above all what matters is not to lose the joy of living in the fear of dying”
Maggie Keswick Jencks

Maggie’s is a national charity which empowers people to live with, through, and beyond cancer via a network of unique cancer caring centres across the UK, designed by leading architects such as Zaha Hadid, Frank Gehry and Sir Richard Rogers.

As official charity partner for London Art Fair 2011 Maggie’s is proud to present The Art of Hope, a collection of work donated by leading contemporary artists including Yoko Ono, Sam Taylor-Wood and Maggi Hambling which reflects their approach to art and wellbeing.

All the pieces on display in The Art of Hope exhibition (located on Gallery Level 2, above the Art Projects section) will be auctioned at the Preview Evening on Tuesday 18 January to raise vital funds for their work with people affected by cancer.

Founded in 1996, Maggie’s was conceived by Maggie Keswick Jencks who, through her own cancer journey, identified the need for a space where people affected by cancer could be empowered to help themselves with the many non-medical challenges associated with the disease. Maggie lost her battle with cancer in 1995 but her vision lives on in ten Maggie’s Centres now open throughout the country.

“The hospital had long ago acquired a surprising and wonderful Renaissance painting. The diametric opposite of the usually bright, cheery and mercilessly inoffensive hospital art, it was a work of brooding, passionate, religious intensity, which I found the perfect foil for the trauma of cancer.”
Edwin Heathcote, Maggie’s supporter

Maggie’s believes that art is as important in their centres as architecture and landscaping. Works of art chosen for Maggie’s Centres are challenging and surprising: the opposite of “hospital art”. They create the personality that transforms their buildings into something more.

What is a Maggie’s Centre?

A Maggie’s Centre is a place to turn to for help with any of the problems, small or large, associated with cancer.

Under one roof you can access help with information, benefits advice, psychological support both individually and in groups, courses and stress reducing strategies. You don’t have to make an appointment, or be referred and everything we offer is free of charge.

It is there for anybody who feels the need for help, which includes those who love and look after someone with cancer, who often feel as frightened and vulnerable as those who actually have the disease.

More about this programme here.

Janet Ellis appeals on behalf of Maggie’s, a charity whose cancer centres have helped tens of thousands of people to come to terms with the disease.

To donate please call 0800 093 93 94, go online at www.bbc.co.uk/lifeline, or send donations to Maggie’s Centres, Freepost, BBC Lifeline Appeal.

A Maggie’s Centre will be many things to many people. It is there for anybody to use in the way they want to. There isn’t a one size fits all recipe for how you live with cancer. Everybody needs to find their own way.

The job of the professionals at Maggie’s is to listen to you, to help you find out what you want and give you the tools to help yourself.

If you’d like to know more, please visit our frequently asked questions page or send an email to [email protected].
