"CAA - Contemporary Art Auction Augur Auction－Sale.8"
This event has ended.
8th edition of Japan's first augur auction dealing in contemporary art!
Focusing mainly on contemporary art from Japan and abroad, Augur Auction aims at the rejuvenation of Japan's contemporary art scene. Since its founding in 2006 by art dealers, its high quality works have attracted the attention of serious collectors.
Japanese artists have recently enjoyed increasing international recognition, but many postwar contemporary artists are still suffering from poor reputation and low valuation. Augur Auction aims to focus on these pioneer artists and accord them the proper evaluation they deserve, in order to create the market conditions that will be able to nurture the next generation of young artists.
