Sanctuary – Artists Against Slavery

This is the second year I have exhibited with this group.  It is interesting that a small gallery in a rural area in New Zealand with the help of a group of volunteers can put on an exhibition with an important message.  In fact within the art establishment around the world discussions are taking place about the sources of funding and sponsorship for public art galleries.  Do these sources have an interest in arms, money laundering, sex slavery and human trafficking.  How independent should a public art gallery be and what is its social responsibility.
