Danmarks Indsamling 2011
Once again this year, we will be holding an art auction as part of the 2011 appeal, and we have invited Denmark’s leading contemporary artists to participate in the auction by donating works for us to auction off. The auction will take the form of a live broadcast auction, which will be held under the same roof as the major appeal show in Carlsberg’s old bottling halls in Valby, close to the centre of Copenhagen.
The hammer price will go directly towards the work of the humanitarian organisations to support the young people of Africa, while the 24% commission, which is always added to the hammer price, will go to the artists by way of thanks for their contribution to the auction. In this way, we hope to be able to raise the quality and thus also the final hammer price.
The artists participating are: Bjørn Nørgaard, Christian Lemmerz, Erik A. Frandsen, Ingvar Cronhammar, Ivan Andersen, Jesper Neergaard, John Kørner, Jonas Hvid Søndergaard, Julie Nord, Lars Nørgård, Lise Malinovsky, Marco Evaristti, Martin Bigum, Michael Kvium, Nils Erik Gjerdevik, Ole Ahlberg, Peter Bonnén and René Holm.
