2017 ISCP Benefit Auction
Bidding opens Friday, November 3, 3pm
Bidding closes Monday, November 20, 8:45pm
The International Studio & Curatorial Program announces the 2017 ISCP Benefit Auction and a new limited edition by Joseph Kosuth. Conducted exclusively through Artsy, the auction offers a range of affordable contemporary art works by established and mid-career artists, including ISCP alumni. Thirty-three international contemporary artists are joining ISCP’s mission by donating all auction proceeds. The funds raised will support the program, and pay to bring artists and curators from areas of the world that do not have significant cultural infrastructural funding.

Featured in the ISCP benefit auction is a new edition by Joseph Kosuth made of paint on cast aluminum, a Paul Laffoley collage with his energetic combination of visual and theoretical references, a deftly executed Walter Robinson painting of pulp fiction novel imagery, and a Polly Apfelbaum monoprint made from cut dogwood branches. Other works include a David Reed color study, in which he inscribes his approaches to color, light, composition, and brushstrokes, and a glass sculpture by Miya Ando, capturing a cloud at 1/2640th of its actual scale, amongst many others. An experience lot, a tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, is provided by Karen E. Jones, art history professor and independent curator.
