Magnitude 9 Exhibition

May 9, 2011

An exhibition organised to raise funds for the Red Cross Japan tsunami disaster relief, held at Mils Gallery in Surry Hills.

A group of Sydney-based photographers, architects and designers have contributed some of their artwork for the Magnitude 9 Exhibition: Japan Tsunami Disaster Relief.

Selected artworks will be auctioned at the events, with all proceeds going to the Red Cross Appeal for Japan & Pacific Disaster Appeal. There are two main events coinciding with the exhibition: the opening night from 6pm on Wednesday 11 May, and a Japanese tea & cake event on Sunday 15 May. Activities on Sunday will include origami & calligraphy workshops, and there will also be an opportunity to write letters to the children in Japan who have been affected by the March 11th Tsunami.

On show at the exhibition will be work by architect Koichi Takada, jeweller and artist Kyoko Hashimoto and photographers Sharrin Rees, Nick Fogarty, Harold David, Michelle Young, Andrew Young and Yann Audic. Each artist has a personal connection to Japan, and the collection of artworks demonstrates how Japanese culture has inspired many creative professionals with such diversity in vision.
