Description

South African Beaded Artwork Sale at Gilman Contemporary

For the third year Monkey Biz will bring the South African Beaded Artwork to Gilman Contemporary. 

Monkeybiz South Africa, is a nonprofit income-generating bead project started in January 2000.

Through creating sustainable employment, Monkeybiz focuses on women's economic empowerment and health development in the most economically under-resourced areas of South Africa.

The project, which has established a vibrant community of more than 450 bead artists, many of whom are the sole breadwinners within their households, has transformed the beaded arts market in South Africa. Departing from the culture of mass-produced curio craft, each Monkeybiz artwork is unique and is signed by the artist, ensuring that individual artists receive recognition for their work.

All of the profits from the sales of artworks are reinvested back into community.

December 19th, 2012, 12~6pm.
