We welcome you to participate in the Off white auction, one of the most notable events in Moscow social and cultural calendar. All you have to do in order to join in is to make a donation of 25,000 Rubles to the Cosmoscow Foundation for Contemporary Art. The number of tickets is limited.
The charity auction will benefit the Cosmoscow Foundation for Contemporary Art. Established in 2017, the Foundation provides systematic support of contemporary art in Russia and encourages the promotion of young artists.
Established in 2014, the Off white contemporary art auction is a charitable initiative of the Cosmoscow International Contemporary Art Fair. In total, over the past four years more than 70 contemporary artworks have been auctioned fetching in excess of €660,000. The fifth anniversary edition of the Off white auction will be held on June 8, 2018 as an independent event anticipating the Cosmoscow Fair. It will take place in partnership with Phillips auction house for the second year running.
Thematic boundaries of the auction set by the multitude of interpretations of the words "свет/light" bring together more than 20 works spanning across two centuries and vast geography from Moscow and New York to Daghestan and Tokyo. The wide diversity of artists and their works helped to carve out four different understandings of "свет/light". The list of participating artists include: Evgeny Antufiev, Olga Chernysheva, Dan Flavin, Evgeny Granilshchikov, Nikolay Koshelev, Andrey Kuzkin, Taus Makhacheva, Alexey Martins, Levan Mindiashvili, Takashi Murakami, Alexandra Paperno, Denis Patrakeev, Yelena Popova, Timofey Radya, Augustas Serapinas, Alexandra Sukhareva, Mikhail Tolmachev, Mariano Vivanco, and Natalia Zintsova.
