The Music World Comes Together to Fight Cancer

Unique cancer charity the No Surrender Charitable Trust has teamed up with Proud Camden to launch a special interactive exhibition, .

Showcasing original, one-off canvases created by leading musicians and bands exclusively for No Surrender; The Art of Music ’09 will present the only opportunity to view the works, which are to be auctioned in order to raise funds to support the charity’s vital efforts.

Featuring contributions from Maximo Park, Friendly Fires, Placebo, Maccabees, LadyHawke, White Lies and charity Trustee KT Tunstall amongst many more, this exhibition represents a coming together of the music world in the fight against cancer. Further adding to the exhibited work, videos of the canvasses being created will be projected on a gallery wall giving audiences the chance to experience the process from start to finish.

Paul Smith of Maximo Park says “We'll always try and support the charity in whatever way possible. It was fun to get involved with the exhibition and flex our artistic muscles. I'm not sure how many people will want to bid for my particular efforts, but I live in hope! There's no doubt it's a great cause.”

Not satisfied with merely featuring some of music’s leading lights, No Surrender has extended an open invitation to a whole hoard of bands and musicians. The exhibition will open with one wall of blank canvases alongside those already completed. Day by day a fresh canvas will be filled, accompanied by a live video stream at of the artwork being created, giving fans and visitors the chance to interact with their favourite band.

This recently extended exhibition now runs for a week and a half, and kicks off with a launch and finishes with a closing night including a one-off special DJ line-up of Maximo Park and Blood Red Shoes.
