Postgraduate Art Auction 2016

Unlike most exhibitions, the Central Saint Martins Postgraduate Art Auction gives you the chance to not just fall in love with the work but also take it home there and then. Celebrating its tenth anniversary, the auction in November 2016 brought together work by the College’s celebrated alumni and current students (fresh from the studio and often previously unseen) with all proceeds contributing to the Postgraduate Art Programme students’ fund.

This year generous donations for the Live Auction came from Antony Gormley, Mona Hatoum, Cathy Lomax, Grayson Perry RA, CBE, Kathy Prendergast, Raqib Shaw, and Yinka Shonibare MBE (RA) among others. 

Alongside the Live Auction of alumni and friends the Silent Auction comprised of work by current second year students from MA Art and Science, MA Fine Art, and MA Photography offering the opportunity to purchase work of artists on the cusp of their careers, with undoubtedly a few Turner Prize winners among them.
