For the first time, Arthouse Contemporary will conduct its Modern and Contemporary Art Auction online, due to the restrictions of social gatherings during the pandemic.

The online auction will take place on Invaluable, the online auction platform and marketplace, www.invaluable.com.

This auction will include 96 lots of artworks from the modern period and cutting edge contemporary art. Featured masters include Ben Enwonwu, Akinola Lasekan, Bruce Onobrakpeya, Okpu Eze, Ben Osawe, Abayomi Barber, Kolade Oshinowo, Abiodun Olaku, Chuks Anyanwu, David Dale and Jimoh Buraimoh.

Leading contemporary artists include Peju Alatise, Rom Isichei, Alimi Adewale, Chike Obeagu, Gerald Chukwuma, Sokari Douglas Camp, Jerry Buhari, Eva Obodo, Victor Ekpuk, Duke Asidere, Ben Osaghae, Chidi Kwuibiri,  Sam Ovraiti, and Ngozi-Omeje Ezema, among others.

International artists from outside of Nigeria include Ablade Glover, Kofi Agorsor, Dominique Zinkpe, Armand Boua, Kofi Setordji, Leonce Raphael Agbodjelou and Camara Amadu Guyeye. The auction also features prints by Ben Enwonwu, Uzo Egonu, Yinka Shonibare and David Dale.

This auction also features four charity lots by Muraina Oyelami, Lemi Ghariokwu, Jimmy Nwanne and Solomon Wangboje, in support of COVID-19 related aid during the pandemic. Funds raised in these charity lots will be donated to our partner, Global Shapers, Lagos Hub, to support feeding and supplies in underserved communities in Lagos State. Arthouse’s online charity auction in April 2020 raised over ₦1,200,000 for aid that has been distributed among communities in Lagos over the past two months. The funds raised with these charity lots will continue these efforts at a much needed time of uncertainty.

All proceeds from the charity lots be donated directly to Global Shapers, Lagos Hub. In addition, no Buyer’s Premium will be added.
