The Siyakhula Michaelis Auction will feature the work of top contemporary South African artists.
Work that will be auctioned off includes pieces by Penny Siopis, Athi-Patra Ruga, Zanele Muholi, Michael Taylor, Jane Alexander, William Kentridge, Deborah Bell, Georgina Gratrix, Buhlebezwe Siwani, Siwa Mgoboza and Bronwyn Katz.
Revenue from the auction, which will be held at the Michaelis School of Fine Art in Cape Town, will go towards scholarships for promising students from historically disadvantaged backgrounds. The initiative is driven by artist and Director of Michaelis, Berni Searle.
Aspire Art Auctions will conduct a live auction in Hiddingh Hall at the Michaelis School of Fine Art on 17 October 2018. An online auction will take place on 11 October on aspireart.net. Bidder registration is open and you can download the digital catalogue here.
