An auction with an urban twist, the event offers first-time buyers, young collectors and art enthusiasts the opportunity to bid on and purchase contemporary original artworks by the Middle East’s rising artists. The exclusive selection goes under the hammer for values between USD500-2,500 (AED1,835-9,180). From paintings and photography to digital media – the audience will have the chance to see the artworks up close to admire and gain a tangible feel of those pieces that may end up in their homes. From the region and beyond, Emergeast has gathered a careful selection of nineteen artworks exclusive to the auction, showcasing a dynamic presentation of affordable art.
The Emergeast Emerging Art Auction, will begin with a reception where further to viewing the artworks on display, guests will have a last chance to register for bidding on the art before the start of the auction. Welcomed by the Emergeast team, guests are invited to enquire about the artworks on display, as well as learn more about the process of an auction before making a decision to bid. Thereafter the auctioneer, young and charismatic to match the lively nature of the auction, will inaugurate the event and start the bidding.
Emergeast, an online gallery catering to a young and fresh audience, is certain that the accessible auction engages a new generation of young enthusiasts – who have yet to be granted access to affordable artworks by talented and growing Middle Eastern artists. As part of the Art Week roster, Emergeast joins the run up to Art Dubai by kicking off with a fun and exciting auction.
Emergeast promises to pave the way for the next generation of art collectors in the Middle East.
