Focus: Fundraising - Making an exhibition

Sam Taylor-Wood has donated a new artwork entitled Beautiful Boy to an exhibition that will raise awareness and funds for War Child.

The exhibition can be seen at the Bargehouse in London until 5 March and also features work by Damien Hirst and graffiti artist Banksy.

Most of the established artists in the show, including Taylor-Wood, Hirst and Banksy, have donated their work so that all the proceeds from their sale will benefit the charity. Up-and- coming artists featured in the exhibition will donate half of the proceeds from the sale of their work. The exhibition also includes a display of decommissioned weaponry and videos on the charity's work. Money raised from the exhibition will help fund projects in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Afghanistan and Iraq.
