Four beautiful artworks by leading contemporary artists Mat Chivers, Ann Christopher and Ben Hendy will be auctioned in aid of Crisis at the Christie’s ‘First Open / LDN sale’ (sale 10420) in South Kensington on 26 March.
The pieces will be auctioned between 4.30 and 5pm and can be viewed from 21 March. Buyers can bid in person or online.
The artworks were created for the Crisis Commission 2014 in a reflection on the theme 'Home'.
Major new works by leading contemporary artists including Martin Creed, Mark Wallinger, Gavin Turk, George Shaw, Bill Woodrow and Richard Long went on sale to raise funds for Crisis. Select pieces were auctioned at Christie’s in September 2014.
The artworks were exhibited as part of the Crisis Commission at The Bermondsey Project and The Strand Gallery in May-June 2014. The exhibition also included works from people who have experienced homelessness – clients of homelessness charity Crisis. This created a unique reflection on the theme of 'Home' in the Crisis Commission art exhibition.
