LONDON.- The Central Saint Martins’ Postgraduate Art Auction brings together work by the college’s celebrated alumni, friends of the college and current students (fresh from the studio and often previously unseen) with all proceeds contributing to the Postgraduate Art Programme students’ fund.

Regular donors such as Antony Gormley, Mona Hatoum and Yinka Shonibare MBE, are joined by Jake & Dinos Chapman, John Stezaker, Mark Titchner, Shezad Dawood and Joseph Kozuth among others. Recent graduates of the post graduate programme include Rolina Blok (2016) and Michael S. Bryan (2017), recipient of the Daniel Ford Award for Innovation.

Rana Begum, fellow King’s Cross inhabitant in the form of her installation No 700 Reflectors Rana Begum, has donated a two-panel work.

Alongside the Live Auction there is a Silent Auction comprising 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 perhaps a future Turner Prize winner among them.

'I feel it's important to support a new generation of artists by participating in the fund raising auction. I have always been a strong advocate for art education, without which I wouldn't be doing what I'm doing now.” --Yinka Shonibare MBE

Previous bidders may have picked up student works by successful artists such as Judy Goldhill (2007), Mary Yacoob (2007), Matthew Krishanu (2009), Michal Martychowiec (2011), Mela Yerka (2011) and Matthew Humphreys (2014). Prices start at £50, but the excitement builds after the Live Auction and anything can happen.

‘The range of work on show here rings loud in affirmation of our many and collected communities. Not only can we take strength from the serious support of these artists treasured for their vision and articulacy, we must further be inspired to champion education devoted to the potential of future makers and artists in all their glorious diversity.” Paul Hayward, Dean of Academic Programmes, Central Saint Martins.

‘A lot of the works convey a sense of threat or menace, often elements outside of the works frame threaten to impinge. From decapitated figure on the swing to a growling jaguar, it is perhaps not surprising given to the current political climate that so many artists are responding with works that create a palpable sense of unease in the viewer. A new gothic sensibility for the modern day; mysterious unicorns emerge from dark forests, lurid pythons hang in the tree tops, ghostly figures walk through a toxic mist, film starlets from a bygone age emerge from the shadows, menacing crows start at the viewer.’ Alex Schady, Programme Director Art, Central Saint Martins

Lots are available to view at the Lethaby Gallery in the week running up to the Auction on 16 November. To view the complete list of works for sale, please visit the Art Auction website closer to the event.
