Eyes as Big as Plates is excited to be part of the North American premiere of Post Capitalistic Auction, a contemporary art auction performance and conceptual artwork created by Jingyi Wang.
Taking place at the Harbourfront Centre in Toronto, Canada on the 14th of December, the auction is the performance and the performance is the auction. You are invited to bid for artworks in new ways, and actual transactions occur. The twist: bidders are invited to make offers not only with money; understanding, opportunity, and/or exchange are equally accepted currencies. The artists are present at the auction and will ultimately decide on the winning bid if they choose one at all. This event will have a concurrent livestream for viewers outside of Toronto, however, only in-person participants will be able to bid.
PCA is created by Jingyi Wang, a China-born, Norwegian-based artist. Zoë Foster is the guest curator for this edition. Confirmed artists: KC Adams (Canada); Riitta Ikonen and Karoline Hjorth (Norway, Finland, US); Ed Pien (Canada); Maria Qamar, aka HATECOPY (Canada); and John Wood & Paul Harrison (UK).
