On Saturday, friends and supporters of the artist Khadija Saye — who died in the devastating Grenfell Tower fire in west London last week — launched a crowdfunding campaign to create a memorial fund in her honor. Artists Dave Lewis and Nicola Green (Saye’s mentor), along with Ingrid Swenson, the director of London nonprofit art space PEER, hope to raise £50,000 (~$63,350) to establish the Khadija Saye Memorial Fund.
“On behalf of all of us involved in Khadija’s Saye’s life as an artist, we are setting up this Fund in memory of Khadija, to help others like her to pursue their passion as artists,” Lewis and Green, who are both featured in the Venice Biennale’s Diaspora Pavilion alongside Saye, said in a statement. “In due course, we will establish a formal Fund and will make a decision together with those involved in Khadija’s journey as an artist, and with professional partners within the cultural sector, about the best way to channel these donations for this cause.” As of this writing, the crowdfunding campaign has generated over £3,000 from more than 100 donors.
Yesterday, in honor of Saye and the other 78 people currently confirmed to have died in the fire, Tate Britain put one of the works from her recent series Dwelling: in this space we breathe on view in its galleries.
