The EXHALE Project is an initiative devoted to support, celebrate and raise awareness of Orange Babies – a charity tackling the HIV/Aids epidemic in African nations through a holistic approach that provides mothers, children and orphans affected by the disease access to much needed medication, nutritional food, education and psychological support.
On a mission to establish an HIV-free future in Zambia, the EXHALE Project, in partnership with Orange Babies is out to empower, educate and unite the community and next generation in Zambia through the team spirit of sport. Studies show sport has the power to inspire and transform the lives and mindset of youths by promoting positive physical, mental and emotional fitness and wellbeing, healthy lifestyle choices, boosting camaraderie, compassion and conflict resolution to build respectful relationships between males and females.
Set to be unveiled in summer 2020, EXHALE will establish a multi-functional soccer field, a five-team strong co-ed youth soccer league and a training program for coaches and mentors in Zambia in an important step towards unification in the fight against HIV and Aids.
Emerald Rose Whipple (b. 1989) transforms fleeting moments of contemporary reality into timeless painterly magnificence. In her decadent and ravishing portrayal, fashion and youth culture are celebrated and obscured.
Referencing the Impressionism and the Old Masters, Whipple painstakingly captures in paint the ephemeral photographic images. Moments are monumentalized.
Whipple presented internationally, including solo shows at VOLTA NY and Galerie Jan Dhaese. paintings have appeared in publications including Dazed & Confused Magazine, Another Magazine, The Last Magazine, i-D Magazine, and Women’s Wear Daily.
