ArtRepublic, a leading curation agency, has once again joined forces with SuperRare, a discovery marketplace for single edition NFT’s, to drop a compelling NFT auction titled “The Resilience of Her Spirit” featuring works by international women photographers. The campaign launches on International Women’s Day, March 8th, with a reserve auction on www.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 with the last 12 months. Ten percent of the proceeds of the NFT sales will go to support 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, “Jessica Santiago, ArtRepublic Founder and CEO said. 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 March 8th with a home page feature on the SuperRare site. Twitter Spaces conversation with the artists and representatives from the UN, WithHer Fund, ArtRepublic and SuperRare.Black artistFemale artistphotography
