Sotheby’s and ICA present 75th Anniversary Auction featuring Denzil Forrester and Yinka Shonibare CBE RA

Sotheby's Contemporary Art Day Auction
The Institute of Contemporary Arts and Sotheby’s have joined forces to raise funds to benefit the pioneering contemporary art institution in its 75th year. More than 20 internationally renowned artists have generously donated artworks including Denzil Forrester and Yinka Shonibare CBE RA. All of the artists involved have played an important part in the ICA’s history, and conversely, many credit the institute with inspiring their work and supporting their practice from the very beginning of their careers. Yinka Shonibare CBE RA, John Currin and Raymond Pettibon have each created entirely new pieces for this sale. 

The collection will go on public view in Sotheby’s London galleries from 8 October, before the works are offered as part of the Contemporary Art Day Auction on 15 October. Proceeds from the auction will support the future of the ICA which, since its inception, has been a progressive, alternative, and safe place for artists who are looking beyond the mainstream: the ones who are willing to go beyond the status quo, the artists who take risks and defy definitions.

Participating artists include Hurvin Anderson, Alvaro Barrington, Andrew Cranston, John Currin, Enrico David, Tacita Dean, Marlene Dumas, Nicole Eisenman, Ida Ekblad, Denzil Forrester, Isa Genzken, Robert Gober, Antony Gormley, Merlin James, Anish Kapoor, Raymond Pettibon, Richard Prince, Prem Sahib, Yinka Shonibare CBE RA, Thomas Struth, Tenant of Culture and Wolfgang Tillmans.
