Fundraiser auction for fourth Kochi-Muziris Biennale
 
(Mumbai, Oct 16, 2017): Modern and contemporary artworks by Amrita Sher-Gil, A Ramachandran, Vivan Sundaram, Subodh Gupta and others will go under the hammer at Kochi Biennale Foundation's (KBF) upcoming fundraiser auction here.

Scheduled to be held on October 31 at Saffronart's office in Prabhadevi, the sale, featuring works by 41 artists, is being organised to raise money to support the fourth edition of the Kochi-Muziris Biennale (KMB).

"This is the only revenue generating effort undertaken by the KBF, and the auction is an unprecedented show of support by the Indian art fraternity for the Kochi-Muziris Biennale as all the works are donations by the artists.

"These donations by artist-patrons show the faith of the art fraternity in the Biennale and the belief that sustenance for it must come from within," Bose Krishnamachari, president of KBF, said.

Other prominent names at the sale, that will witness both live and online bidding, include -- Sahej Rahal, Bharti Kher, Atul Dodiya, TV Santhosh, Pushpamala N, Abir Karmakar, Prajakta Potnis, Parvathi Nayar, Manjunath Kamath and Kerala artists Bhagyanath, Benitha Perciyal, P S Jalaja, KP Reji, Sosa Joseph, Vivek Vilasini and Gigi Scaria.

Francesco Clemente, an Italian contemporary artist, is the only foreigner whose work will be auctioned.

"These artists are generously placing their works on auction without a buyer's premium attached.

"The auction is really about more than just the value of the works, it is a sign of the exceptional participation and sense of ownership the Indian art fraternity has felt towards this event," Riyas Komu, secretary of KBF, said.

A preview of these artworks will be held on October 26 at the Saffronart offices here.

The next KMB, that is scheduled to be held in December 2018, will be curated by contemporary artist Anita Dube.(PTI)
