OXFORD.- Modern Art Oxford celebrates 50 years as a leading contemporary art space by hosting their first ever auction in London in collaboration with Bonhams, one of the world’s largest auctioneers of fine art.

To support the work of the gallery, a selection of nineteen works by some of the most important figures working in contemporary art today, will be sold as part of the Bonham’s Post War & Contemporary Art sale, London, on 8 March 2017.

Internationally renowned artists including Marina Abramović, Tracey Emin, Mona Hatoum, Howard Hodgkin, Anish Kapoor and Yoko Ono have donated works to the charity auction. Paul Hobson, Director of Modern Art Oxford, said “We invited a select group of artists who have shown at Modern Art Oxford, to donate a work for sale at auction. The aim of the initiative is to provide financial support for the gallery’s activities and artistic programmes. We have been truly humbled and delighted by their response”.

As a charity, Modern Art Oxford relies heavily on the financial support of those who are passionate about art and artists and each year is required to raise the funds to cover the costs of the gallery’s worldrenowned artists programme.
