Dear Artists, Collectors and Friends,
For the 10th edition of Dead Darlings – Anonymous Art Auction we are returning to our humble DIY origins by planning this auction ourselves, just for the fun of it, to enjoy and celebrate art with our community just in time for the December Saturnalia / Winter Solstice / Festivus celebrations where the spirit of gift-giving, charity and reversal of fortunes, transforms us and fills us with delight!
Sometimes a work had its 15 minutes of fame, its brief moment in the spotlight and then got put aside, never really given a proper chance…
*A Flash in the Pan
“A thing or person whose sudden but brief success is not repeated or repeatable.”
“Something that shows great promise, then disappoints by being over too quickly.”
As always DD’s are auctioned anonymously until the final sale, a list of the participating artists in alphabetical order and an online catalogue will be available soon in advance. More information about us and our past events: www.deaddarlings.nl/events
Dead Darlings is an interactive event combining elements of performance and exhibition that come together in the form of a non-profit anonymous art auction. Our collective has been active, and organizing this event annually since 2005. For the event, we self-publish a handmade auction catalogue (the latest addition to our limited edition DD publication series); we’ll put together an online preview, open our doors for viewing before the auction and conclude in a live auction that is open to the general public. By tradition, all the lots will be introduced by title only. Contributing artists will be listed on our website, but will not be revealed in connection to the work until the sale is final.
Proceeds go to our favorite “charity”: the people who made the work. As a way to encourage everyone to be a collector, our starting prices often begin from zero or just a few euros, so come ready to bid and resurrect fabulous artworks with a wave of your paddle! Payments can be made in cash, tikkie or through your phone bank Apps.
SAVE THE DATE!
