After the success of Art Trade at Sociëteit Sexyland, we’ve been asked by Huize Frankendael to host another auction during Museumnacht.
On saturday november the 4th, six artists will offer their painting, drawing or photo up ‘for sale’. Visitors get the chance to make a bid with anything they can possibly think of except for money! What about a stay in Los Angeles, a home-cooked four-course dinner or a water purification system? What do you have to offer?
With this event, we want to let visitors think about the value of art. In addition we want to make the collecting of art accessible to a wider audience. Not everyone is able to pay a large amount of money for art. We give the public an opportunity to use their talent or possessions in a creative way.
The event relates to the current exhibition at Huize Frankendael (the only remaining 17th century countryhouse of Amsterdam), about the collection of Aernoud Bourdrez. He is a lawyer specialized in intellectual property and the art of negotiation. Besides the work of, among others, Viviane Sassen, Henri Cartier Bresson and Saskia Noor van Imhoff, the results of his many negotiations are shown, in which Bourdrez raises and decreases the boundaries of both image and negotiation.
Visitors can make their bid during the evening. The festive auction will take place in three rounds, under the direction of auctioneer and performer Tobias Verhagen. It’s the artist’s choice on which offer to take on.
The participating artists are: Lonneke van der Palen, Menno Kok, Frank E Hollywood, Sam Andrea, Marilyn Sonneveld and Floor van het Nederend
See you then!
Date: 4th November
