Compassionate Voices

Compassionate Voices is a unique exhibition celebrating animals, art and creativity. The exhibition is a collaboration between Voiceless, the animal protection institute, Koskela , and a collection of 31 innovative Australian artists and designers united by their vision of a world where animals are treated with compassion and respect. See launch details here.

Curated by Liane Rossler, and part of Sydney Design, a cutting-edge design festival produced and managed by the Powerhouse Museum, the exhibition will feature artwork and design objects spanning multiple disciplines and a specially commissioned centrepiece by sculptor, Anna-Wili Highfield.

All works are available for purchase and will be displayed from 9 August to 7 September at Koskela’s Rosebery exhibition space. 

The opening night of Compassionate Voices will be a special evening of art, advocacy and creativity in support of Voiceless. Held on 14 August, the gala evening will feature Dr Charlie Teo AM as master of ceremonies, Christie’s auctioneer Ronan Sulich, live entertainment, a children’s craft workshop and delicious vegan cuisine from Kitchen by Mike.

Interested artwork buyers who are unable to attend opening night will be able to bid via mobile devices or the web, while a live auction of selected artworks will also be held on the opening night.
