Auction Description

It is with great pleasure that we present to you the Fondation Beyeler’s Summer Night’s Gala 2017. Once again, these collector’s items have been donated by internationally acclaimed artists, collectors and galleries with whom the Fondation Beyeler enjoys a close working relationship. They are joined by some much sought-after Art Editions from the Fondation Beyeler Art Shop.

The benefit auction gives you the opportunity to purchase some very special works of art and at the same time to support the Fondation Beyeler’s ambitious program of world-class exhibitions, which affords large numbers of people an unforgettable experience of art.

Thank you for your support.
