JAMM, an independent strategic art advisory, will host its 2nd auction in Kuwait on 9 February 2011 featuring 70 works by emerging and established Arab, Iranian and International artists.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to present the works of the top contemporary artists from Kuwait and to showcase the best of the best from across the Middle East and beyond.
Part of the proceeds from this sale will benefit KAACH, the Kuwait Association for the Care of Children in Hospital,” said Sheikha Lulu Al Sabah, co-founder of JAMM.
Offering over 70 works of art by renowned artists, including Nabil Nahas, Rokni Haerizadeh, Rahim Sharif, Reza Derakshani, Damian Hirst, Hassan Meer, Ahmed Alsoudani and Farideh Lashai, the auction will provide an opportunity for both new and existing clients in the GCC region and beyond to add to their collections of contemporary art.
Keeping in mind the fast-growing appetite and appreciation for quality artworks at the right price, all pieces at the auction will be under 14,000 KD ($50,000).
A public exhibition of the artworks will take place at the Avenues on 8 February, ahead of the auction.
JAMM hopes that the preview will provide an opportunity for the public to visit and enjoy the art that will go under the hammer on the February 9, 2011
The auction will be conducted by renowned auctioneer, Aileen Agopian, who has been instrumental in the successes of many evening sale auctions of private collections as well as setting new records for artists such as Richard Prince and Julian Schnabel, to name a few.
10% of the proceeds from the auction sale will benefit a Kuwait based non-profit organization, KAACH, the Kuwait Association for the Care of Children in Hospital.
