“Show Me the Signs” Auction Raises Funds Against Police Brutality

By Pearl Fontaine

November 10, 2020

More than one hundred creatives have donated works for the “Show Me the Signs” auction and exhibition, benefitting the African American Policy Forum’s (AAPF) #SayHerName campaign. Now on Artfizz and live through November 30, the virtual sale features a series of protest signs, which will donate all proceeds to the initiative.

Conceived by AAPF in 2014, the #SayHerName campaign highlights the stories of Black women, femmes, and girls who have been killed by the police. Working with the victims’s mothers and other family members, the organization aims to spread visibility surrounding their stories, working towards justice and providing support for those they have left behind.

Accompanying the sale, all works will be on view at Blum & Poe LA through November 14, where the walls of the gallery have been plastered with protest signs large and small. Appearing as though they were freshly hung after a demonstration, Los Angeles locals will see works ranging from raw signage made on cardboard and written in marker to more formal creations—each bearing unique artwork or empowering sayings in support of the victims of police brutality and the Black Lives Matter movement, like “No Justice, No Peace,” “Say Her Name,” and “You can look away but you can’t pretend not to know.”

Participating artists include prominent names from throughout the creative industries, like Jim CarreyGeorge Condo, Nathaniel Mary QuinnCardi BKenny ScharfBillie EilishCamille HenrotRashid Johnson, Zoë Buckman, David HockneyAaron FowlerDidier WilliamNick DoyleMira Dancy, and Delia Brown.
