The Fine Art Auction VIP evening went really well last night (13 November). A great crowd attended and the students work curated by Alex Schady got lots of positive comments.

New art magazine Avenir, which focuses on emerging artists and is edited by Vanessa Power and designed by CSM BA Culture, Criticism and Curation 3rd year student Timothy Chan sent two journalists to the event. They both were impressed, especially by Nikolas Ventourakis and his work Billboard1. The piece comes from his most recent project Leaving Utopia, which focuses on the economic and social decline in Athens, Greece.  Ventourakis won the Deutsche Bank Award in Photography in May.

Several Advanced Bids, both on the Live Auction and on the Postgraduate Student Work were taken during the VIP event that sponsor Daniel Ford attended.

The Live Auction takes place on Thursday 14 November at 5.30pm
