This coming Wednesday evening, C The Visual Arts Foundation, publisher of C Magazine, will host its 8th annual auction of Contemporary Art. This fundraiser to support the magazine will feature works donated by 60 of Canada’s most interesting contemporary artists. Perry Tung, the auctioneer of Bonhams Canada, will lead the exciting evening’s main event, taking place on April 11th at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (MOCCA). Proceeds raised will support C Magazine operations and programming for the coming year and all participating artists will receive a portion of sales.
On February 29th, members of The Ministry visited Bonhams Canada for a special preview of the works in the auction. C Magazine Editor, Amish Morrell, and Perry Tung of Bonhams, hosted an evening discussion about the important work the foundation does, the works in the exhibition, and how contemporary art auctions work.
