Freud Museum 25th Anniversary Art Auction
20 October 2011 – 20 November 2011
The Freud Museum is organising a fundraising art auction as part of the celebrations surrounding its 25th anniversary.
Exhibitions of work by contemporary artists have been an important strand in the Freud Museum’s programme for many years. Artists welcome the opportunity to respond to Freud’s home, collections and ideas, and the Museum has benefited from the creative energy that these artists have brought into the house.
Artists who have exhibited and supported the Museum have been asked to contribute a piece of work to be auctioned, those who have kindly donated works to date are:
Judith Alder, Alice Anderson, Santiago Borja, Paul Coldwell, Anne Deguelle, Michele Fletcher, Patricio Forrester, Kathleen Fox, Solveigh Goett, Judy Goldhill, Antony Gormley, John Goto, Sarah Grainger-Jones, Maggi Hambling, Susan Hiller (as pictured), Andy Hope 1930, Sharon Kivland, Vivienne Koorland, Annie Leibowitz, Linda Lencovic, Barbara Loftus, Caroline May, Jane McAdam Freud, Maurice Owen, Martin Rowson, Nike Savvas, Lili Spain, Emilia Telese, John Timberlake, Alison Watt and Rachel Wilberforce.
An exhibition of works will open on Thursday 20 October, when a silent auction will be launched which will run until Sunday 20 November at 8pm.
