Amazing week at Pace Gallery! Artists for Peace and Justice gathered close friends from the art world and Hollywood to open the second edition of FIERCE CREATIVITY, a four-day selling exhibition featuring work from 45+ leading contemporary artists who are committed to extraordinary impact. Curated by Chuck Close and Jessica Craig-Martin, every piece of artwork in the collection is poised to change lives: 100% of proceeds from the exhibition will benefit Artists for Peace and Justice.

Guests included APJ Board Member Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor, Catherine Keener, Sting & Trudy Styler, Griffin Dunne, Josephine Meckseper, Yvonne Force Villareal, Fabiola Beracasa-Beckman, Casey Fremont Crowe, Charlotte Kidd, Peter Tunney, Agnes Gund, Nemo Librizzi, Loan Chapanol, Max Osterweis, Michael Avedon, Matilde Carli, Nicholas Graham, Vikram Chatwal, Lex Fenwick, Marc Glimcher, Stacy Engman, Julian Lethbridge, Gabriella Wright, Carter Lay, Jackson Rathbone, Jody Durst, Chelsea Seltzer and Theo Rosenblum, and Tali Lennox among many others.

Says FIERCE CREATIVITY curator Jessica Craig-Martin, “It would not have been possible for me to ask people to contribute if I did not believe in the effectiveness of Artists for Peace and Justice and in the new template it brings to the charity world. These artworks are the fuel for a simple but powerful weapon: education. It is a cause that I believe all artists should be involved in, as there are none of us who could refute every child’s right to a good and free education.”
