“A small town at the turn of the century #5,” 1999 - 2000/2010 (detail)
Thanks to Australia's Centre for Photography (CCP), a photograph by Australia’s 2013 Venice Biennale artist and one of the world’s most intriguing contemporary artists, Simryn Gill, is currently available for AUD$8000. Considering the popularity of Simryn Gill's work and that 80% of the money raised by the print goes to such a good cause, this is a great opportunity.
As part of the CCP 2010 Limited Edition Print fundraising campaign, Gill made available her amazing photograph “A small town at the turn of the century #5,” 1999 – 2000, as a limited edition of 12 prints. Seven prints from the edition of 12 are still available with most of those already sold going to major public collections.
According to the CCP, “In her now iconic series, “A small town at the turn of the century,” 1999 - 2000, Simryn Gill invites friends to wear masks of monumental tropical fruit, whilst going about their daily lives in Port Dickson, Malaysia. Critically acclaimed and widely exhibited, this photograph is no longer available. In support of CCP, Simryn Gill is offering this image at 76.2 x 76.2 cm as a new hand-printed edition.”
This is a rare opportunity to purchase a fantastic work of art by the world renowned Australian-based artist Simryn Gill from a series has been exhibited extensively in Australia and internationally.
Eighty percent of funds raised through Limited Edition Prints enable CCP to support the practice and presentation of contemporary photography through provision of exhibitions, publications, education and public programs, with the artist retaining twenty percent.
