An auction of works on paper, textiles and sculpture
Curated in collaboration with Catie van Beuningen, we hosted an auction at Alon Zakaim Fine Art in Mayfair that celebrated the creativity of 22 contemporary artists and their unique approaches to working with paper, textile and sculpture. The group show created the opportunity for dialogue between the different textures, delicacies and forms of the artwork.
Starting prices ranged from £80 to £3,500 and as usual, to help make art auctions more affordable, there was no buyer’s commission.
The exhibition included a pop-up music gig with Sofar Sounds and culminated with the auction on the 8 November. The evening's auction saw 150 people come to the Mayfair gallery to buy artwork from the emerging, graduate and established artists. As a result, and thanks to the phone and absentee bidders, just under 70% of the artwork went to new art buyers and collectors across the U.K. and Europe.
As ever, a huge thank you to our sponsors, partners, artists, buyers and bidders for making this possible.
