Exhibition & Viewing: 14 – 20 December
In response to current art market climates ‘Christie’s racks up $745m in one night – and the bubble keeps inflating’ (Guardian 14 May 2014), as well as the increase in artists taking charge of their own sales; through internet/ website presence, taking part in art fairs and accessing a new young crowd of hopeful collectors, artist-led gallery C&C Gallery have decided to take the art market into their own hands. A spin on Hirst’s auction of 15/16 September 2008, the gallery are bypassing themselves in a bid to promote emerging artists and recognise established artists’ achievements.
Live Auction 20th Dec 2014 @ C&C Gallery
This is not a charity auction in the usual sense, unless you consider supporting artists’ careers and the preservation of art to be ‘charity’, which many people do. In support of artists, C&C Gallery will not be asking for donations, they are foregoing all artist commission saving artists the usual 40-50% in gallery fees. Collectors will have the opportunity to buy artworks they may not be able to access at studio prices; it gives young collectors a foot in the collectors door at the same time as giving seasoned collectors opportunity to support the artists and artwork they love.
PLEASE NOTE: Buyers’ premium of 15% will be added to all final hammer prices
