For Christie’s Post-War and Contemporary day sale, artist Darren Bader is asking you to help him to raise money. This is not, however, a last-ditch fundraising attempt for materials; Bader has not run out of paint. ‘The work is the money,’ the artist explains, and it is to be raised through crowd funding site Indiegogo, before being auctioned at Christie’s London on 12 February.
‘I’m going to set the goal ridiculously high, at £310,786,’ Bader explains. ‘Whatever’s raised by 11 February is the amount that goes to auction the next day. This is not a joke, it’s not a scam — it’s an artwork. I’m not going to make any money off of it; the winning bid is going to charity.’
‘If you’re interested in helping me reach the goal of £310,786,’ says Bader, ‘I’d love that.’ Those wishing to help Darren Bader make ___GBP can do so by clicking here.
