Ikon’s 50th anniversary celebrations will culminate in Artists for Ikon, an exhibition at the gallery (24 April – 4 May 2015) followed by a major contemporary art auction at Sotheby’s, London 2nd July 2015. The exhibition will preview works donated for the auction by some of today’s most important artists, all of whom have exhibited at the gallery. It will be a survey of Ikon’s greatest hits.
Artists include Hurvin Anderson, Martin Creed, Ian Davenport, Marcel Dzama, Ryan Gander, Antony Gormley, Carmen Herrera, Roger Hiorns, Beatriz Milhazes, Julian Opie and Cornelia Parker amongst others. The proceeds of the auction will lay the foundations for Ikon’s 50th Anniversary Endowment Fund, dedicated to the gallery’s artistic programme and the commissioning of new art work.
