Chairity: Art and Design Against Cancer

We supported Singaporean Imis Iskandar to bring his project, ‘Chairity: Art and Design Against Cancer’ to Jakarta, Indonesia.

The project features 50 Indonesian and Singaporean artists who harnessed the power of art and design to express their experience of cancer.

The collaborative effort between artists of the two countries resulted in the exhibition of 55 chairs at Plaza Indonesia that created visibility and awareness on the disease.

The project finally culminated in an auction of selected chairs that raised Rp5.33 billion for the Indonesian Cancer Foundation (Jakarta Division) and the Indonesian Children Oncology Foundation.
