Dead Darlings Collective and This Art Fair join forces to bring you an exciting summer event that combines elements of performance and exhibition. We invite you to our subversive, inclusive, anonymous art auction: Dead Darlings #19 — And Now THIS! Featuring a tantalising and diverse list of artists while highlighting those unique pieces that lie outside artist’s main body of work. In this edition we pay homage to the outliers: artworks that somehow fail to fall into orbit, pieces that refuse to be incorporated in the system…

We place these rather particular works in the spotlight, tell their stories and help them find a new home where they can finally belong. Dead Darlings auctions are anonymous, meaning that we only announce the name of the maker after the sale of the piece! This impartiality creates a playful tension and sets our auctions apart.

In addition to the anonymity, these works have no pre-existing commercial price tag, allowing artists to set low starting prices, giving everyone a chance to bid and acquire a unique original art piece while stimulating an ongoing conversation about how art is valued.

Entrance is free and everyone with an auction paddle can participate and bid in the auction. It will be conducted in a fun and casual atmosphere. Drinks are generously provided by our friends at Oedipus, there will be snacks, music and of course lots and lots of darlings!

See you there!

Check our online catalogue here and come visit us on the preview days to look around and say hi! On the day of the auction, please come early to register for your bidding paddle, find a good seat and grab a drink from the bar! There is no added fee to the selling price; payment is possible through iZettle, but cash is preferable! After which, you can take your darling home right away!
