Last night, on Thursday 14 November, friends, staff and students of Central Saint Martins gathered together for the annual Postgraduate Art Auction in an extraordinary show of generosity

This year’s auction raised an amazing £30,745.00 which will fund events in the postgraduate Art programme. Led by our returning auctioneer Adrian Biddell, donations for the Live Auction included works by Antony Gormley, Mona Hatoum, Shezad Dawood and Paula Rego. The companion Silent Auction presented over 90 works by current postgraduate Art students with everyone invited to make their bids until the evening came to a close with a countdown led by Alex Schady, Art, Programme Director.

Thank you to all those involved: the artists and students for donating their work, the events staff, Art programme staff, the generous bidders and our auctioneer Adrian Biddell. Thanks also to our 2019 sponsors Chestertons.
