The Goodman Gallery is collaborating with global nongovernmental organisation Orange Babies in a creative project that mixes art and philanthropy.

Orange Babies recently launched a branch in South Africa.

In the project, 12 artists from the Goodman Gallery’s roster contribute a uniquely designed dinner plate and side plate to create a limited-edition dinner set.

The artists include major South African and internationally renowned artists such as Lisa Brice, Kudzanai Chiurai, Sam Nhlengethwa, Kendell Geers, David Goldblatt, Alfredo Jaar, William Kentridge and others.

The dinner sets will be available for purchase at the upcoming Joburg Art Fair next month and at the Goodman Gallery thereafter while stocks last.

The project forms part of the gallery’s annual corporate responsibility initiative and all proceeds from the sale of the sets will fund Orange Babies projects in South Africa.

Orange Babies is involved in humanitarian projects to help impoverished pregnant women living with HIV/Aids and their children across Africa. It was originally conceived by Senegalese activist Baba Sylla in 1998.

We at #Trending think they’ve found a refreshing way of linking art, fundraising and artistic panache.
