Issa PR has been appointed to handle the international launch of a public artwork in Denmark that will be unveiled on Saturday 31 March.
The agency will represent artists Jeannette Ehlers and La Vaughn Belle to raise awareness of their sculpture, I Am Queen Mary. The work will highlight Denmark’s colonial impact in the Caribbean and those who fought against it.
Ehlers and Belle said: “We’re very happy to work with Issa PR given their focus on art and culture, social good and justice. This is an important story for us to tell and we need the right partner to elevate this on a global scale.”
Issa PR CEO Viet N’Guyen added: “This powerful narrative and public monument will create history in shining a light on what transpired. We have tremendous admiration and respect for these fearless female artists, who are pushing new boundaries in art.
“Already recognised by the National Gallery of Denmark, ActionAid, The Danish Agency for Culture and Palaces, Municipality of Copenhagen and Beckett Foundation, we hope to raise further awareness and visibility for this seminal story and launch.”
