The wonderful artwork in our Summer Auction deserves to have a show. These postcard-sized mini masterpieces have been created by an incredible roster of artists and promise a colourful start to the summer. Join us at Hoxton Gallery - the whole side of the gallery opens up to create an indoor-outdoor exhibition experience to make the most of the summer weather, which you can enjoy with a complimentary drink of White Claw Hard Seltzer in hand.
This exhibition and auction mark the twentieth anniversary of The Hepatitis C Trust. The Trust has prided itself on its innovative approach to charity work and has packed a massive amount into those twenty years. As well as building the Art on a Postcard brand as a fundraising tool, they have set out to make themselves obsolete by campaigning to eliminate hepatitis C by 2030. In addition to playing a huge part in getting the NHS England to announce a unique elimination deal in 2019, The Trust played its part in getting 194 countries to sign up to elimination by 2030.
To help celebrate this extraordinary feat the line-up includes conceptual artist Anish Kapoor, Jordan Wolfson whose enigmatic, and at times provocative, work investigates the darker side of the human condition. Art historian and instigator of The African Diva Project, Margaret Rose Vendryes, has set out to celebrate and connect Black female singers with their ancestorial roots; Shezad Dawood whose multi-media works are inspired by his varied cultural heritage and Marina Adams whose work explores colour form and movement.
Bidding starts at £50 on each lot
