Making a point
An exhibition of TWENTYEIGHT FINGERS, an arts project realised by Leeds alumna Joanna Brown will be showing at Dean Clough in Halifax from September to January.
The project, the idea of which grew out of a conversation with fellow master students here at the University, has involved moulding 28 bronze casts of the index fingers of significant creative people of our time, such as Alan Bennett and Dame Vivien Westwood.
The work aims to highlight the diversity of creative thinking and practice and will culminate in an online auction to raise money for art therapy at Freedom from Torture, a charity which treats torture survivors, and The Art House in Wakefield.
Speaking of the project, Joanna said: 'I'm really thrilled by how the artistic work has matured over time and there are so many stories to tell. I'm also excited about holding the auctions online as they will be accessible to everyone. I think the charities will be delighted by the amount raised'.
The exhibition will be on display in Halifax from 15 September to 6 January.
