Hosted at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, Ely House, the preview of the auction will take place from May 21 to 23. It will gather a selection of artworks by artists from Europe or living in Europe such as Marina Abramović, Grayson Perry, Marlene Dumas, Sylvie Fleury, Daniel Buren or Pascale-Marthine Tayou and Giuseppe Penone. Featuring several original commissions, works such as Jan Fabre’s diptych or Francesco Vezzoli’s montage explore European identity and the current challenges it faces today. Other artists, like Grayson Perry or Elmgreen & Dragset who frequently address the European situation in their work, reflect with anxiety and irony their concern about the future of Europe. Following the exhibition, these artworks will be sold at a charity auction in aid of European cultural projects.
