Dead Darlings is an anonymous art auction founded in Amsterdam in 2005 as a platform to explore the complex love triangle between artist, artwork, and collector. Including a mix of established and emerging artists, each lot is sold anonymously, and authorship is only revealed after the sale is complete!
By asking for art that has been “killed” and encouraging artists to offer up beloved and unique works at very low starting prices, we are able to extend the label of “art collector” to people who would not otherwise be able to afford original contemporary art works.
DEAD DARLINGS #9 is a co-production of DEAD DARLINGS and FOAM, supported by AFK, AMSTERDAM FONDS VOOR DE KUNST.
For more information please write to email@example.com and check www.deaddarlings.nl and www.foam.org for updates!
This year our theme is Entropy, the journey from order to disorder, as experienced by the artist, the work itself, or both. The auction is held in an informal and casual atmosphere where the act of selling and acquiring art becomes a performance in its own right. The building of enthusiasm for these little outcasts binds makers and lovers of art together. We see it as a liberation, where every Darling gets the second chance it deserves.
The last day of Foam Fusion promises to keep you on the edge of your seat: the day begins with a live concert and ends with the much-anticipated Dead Darlings art auction. https://www.foam.org/museum/programme/foam-fusion-day-3#dead%20darlings
All sales will be cash only so bring as much as you can spare! There is an ATM round the corner in case you get carried away and go over budget, but please help us keep things quick and easy by remembering to bring cash!
There will be custom-made DD cocktails available along with wine and beer to help lubricate your munificence and keep the mood light and cheerful as Auction entropy takes it’s natural toll…
