A company motto of ours is “All Action, Less Talk” so below we outline highlights of real impact/ charitable initiatives our company & founder Amar Singh has engaged in::
AMAR SINGH CONTINUES TO LEAD INDIA'S NATIONAL EFFORT TO END LGBT+ CONVERSION THERAPY
After homosexuality was legalised in 2018 across India, a ruling Amar Singh championed, he was inspired by the supreme court case which led to LGBT+ victory. Amar spent years researching funding, reaching out and building a team to lead the supreme court case he conceived to end the immoral practice of LGBT+ conversion therapy.
Amar has covered all costs associated with this case and recruited human rights lawyers Ravi Kant & Ankita Surabhi along with the brave petitioner, friend & fellow LGBT+ activist Prince Manvedra Singh Gohil. Together they continue their fight for LGBT+ rights
$5 MILLION WORTH OF ART BY WOMEN, LGBT+& MINORITIES ARTISTS DONATED BY AMAR SINGH TO MUSEUMS
Amar Singh pledged in January 2021 to donate $5 million worth of art by underrepresented artists to museums worldwide by 2025, he did this by June 2022 donating major works by artists such as Loie Hollowell, Maria Berrio & Kenturah Davis amongst other to museums including the Smithsonian, stedelijk museum & the National Portrait Gallery, London.
$260,00+ DONATED TO LGBT+ FOUNDATION MAG JEUNES
Over $130,000 was made through the sale of LGBT+ NFTs Amar Studio curated alongside artists Rewind Collective. The entire proceeds were donated to the LGBT+ foundation Mag Jeunes in France. This is onto of the $128,000 that was raised through Amar Studio’s 2021 partnership with Givenchy
$30,000 DONATED TO KIDNEY, HEART & DIABETES CHARITIES
Amar Singh’s eponymous Islington gallery has a simple but laudable ethos, specializing in exhibitions of LGBTQ and female artists with diverse, progressive narratives. Raised in London but a member of the royal Kapurthala family of Punjab, Singh was one of many political campaigners who made up a global coalition that last month recorded a landmark legal victory in India, overturning the country’s 2013 criminalization of gay sex. Now, Amar Gallery is turning to one of the lesser-known histories of art, with an exhibition of the women behind Abstract Expressionism in 1950s and 60s America.
