NEW YORK, USA - In Honour of International Women’s Day, Leading Digital Art Agency ArtRepublic To Curate A Powerful NFT Auction On SuperRare Featuring Globally Recognized Women Photographers in Support of the WithHer Fund
ArtRepublic, a leading curation agency, has once again joined forces with SuperRare, a discovery marketplace for single edition NFTs, to drop a compelling NFT auction featuring works by international women photographers. The campaign launches on International Women’s Day, March 8th, with a reserve auction on SuperRare.com. A portion of the NFT sales will benefit the WithHer Fund, a collaboration between the UN Foundation and the Spotlight Initiative.
The ‘Resilience of Her Spirit’ features multiple unique female photographers including Laylah Amatullah Barrayn, Inna Modja, Vicki King and Le Fawnhawk curated by Jessica Santiago and Ivy Bealyer of ArtRepublic. This body of work represents journalistic, surrealism and conceptual photography and has created a powerful collection of NFTs that celebrate the spirit and strength of women from nations around the world. The collection also provides a platform to showcase the works of women artists who are committed to social change including ending violence against women and girls.
One in three women worldwide have experienced physical or sexual violence, and one in five women and girls have experienced physical and/or sexual violence by an intimate partner within the last 12 months. Ten percent of the proceeds of the NFT sales will go to support the WithHer Fund – which provides flexible funds to local, high-impact, frontline, grassroots women’s rights organizations who have been tackling gender-based violence.
“As the digital art market evolves, photography NFTs are at the forefront on all major platforms,'' said Jessica Santiago, ArtRepublic Founder & CEO. “Creatives are shaping the modern world, especially as we transcend into Web.3. At its onset, this movement has stemmed from art and community. The pioneers of this movement are speaking in unison about the spirit of it being love, inclusiveness, support and collaboration. We have seen the power and abundance a united community can create but, to whom much is given, much is required. It is vital that we harness the resources we are generating through NFTs to create the change we want to see.”
The reserve auction will take place on SuperRare.com and will launch on Marth 8th with a homepage feature on the SuperRare site, and Twitter Spaces conversation with the artists and representatives form the UN WithHer Fund, ArtRepublic and SuperRare.
