ARTATTACK! is one of Toronto's best-loved and most outrageous art auctions. As Buddies celebrates its 40th anniversary season, a punk rock inspired Art Party will serve as the backdrop to this year's event. The night offers art aficionados and novices alike an exclusive chance to scoop up work by over 50 visual artists and enjoy an unforgettable night full of surprises.
The ARTATTACK! live auction is a showcase of works from some of the biggest up-and-coming artists in Toronto. In addition, the ever-popular Rock Hudson Memorial Tuck Shop is back, selling unique art pieces and limited edition prints at set prices, with a range of purchase options for all ARTATTACK! guests. Featured artists include, Stephen Andrews, Anna May Henry, Erin Vincent, Jay Isaac, Rajni Perera, Tazeen Qayyum, Lucas Murnaghan, Jennifer Wardle, and many more.
For the sixth year in a row, ARTATTACK! is proud to feature a commissioned set of 20 limited-edition prints by a celebrated Canadian artist. This year's selection is from Toronto-based artist and photographer Steven Beckly, whose work has been exhibited in solo shows in Toronto and St. John's, and published in Artforum, Border Crossings, and Canadian Art. With Beckly's piece, ARTATTACK! guests have a chance to add this new work from a prominent local artist to their very own collection. Each of Beckly's prints, available for sale now, comes framed courtesy of Akasha Art Projects at a set price of $500.
