White Columns is pleased to announce its 2014 Benefit Exhibition and Auction. Featuring donated works by more than 90 contemporary artists the Benefit Exhibition will open on May 3 and conclude with a live auction on May 17. Proceeds from the Benefit will support White Columns’ programs and services to artists and the public.
The Karl Holmqvist Project:
As a part of the 2014 Benefit we have commissioned 23 artists – including Klara Liden, Adam McEwen, Elizabeth Peyton, and Wolfgang Tillmans – to create a new work in response to a recording by Karl Holmqvist. The resulting artworks will be on view in the Benefit Exhibition and will be sold at the May 17th Auction. 50% of the proceeds from the sale of these works will help directly support Karl Holmqvist's practice, and 50% will help support White Columns' programs. This fall White Columns will release Holmqvist's recording as a 12” vinyl record on its label ‘The Sound of White Columns.’
Images of all donated works can be viewed online from May 3.
