Breast Cancer Foundation (BCF), a non-profit organisation with the mission to eradicate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease, has been chosen as a charity partner by renowned London-Singapore designer and contemporary artist – Benny Ong – for his latest exhibition, Women.Shoes.Freedom. The show will run from 8 March to 7 April at the UOB Art Gallery. The launch event will be held on 10 March, with BCF representatives sharing more on Healing Through the Arts programmes. In addition, proceeds from the sale of one of the art pieces will be donated to BCF to support the cause.
Women.Shoes.Freedom is a collection of new hand-woven art designed by Benny, exploring the traditional and modern role of women, using traditional weaving materials juxtaposed with modern imagery. The works build on Benny’s ongoing passion for combing traditional weaving techniques of master Laotian weavers with bold, captivating contemporary art that invite viewers to build on narratives woven into each piece.
