Natology is proud to be a part of Downtown Los Angeles' newest art auction house BID27LA. Inspired by 27 Rue de Fleurus, Gertrude Stein’s famous art salons of the nineteen twenties, Bid27 serves as a single destination for discovering culturally progressive art while providing informative mentorship for artists and purchasing guidance for collectors. In the spirit of creative movements and the current shift in paradigm, this marks another evolution for contemporary art and its patrons.
BID27 launched its inaugural auction on Thursday April 17th, 2014 at Think Tank Gallery, bringing with it a new platform that enhances support for our creative community. With 10% of all proceeds donated to MCLA (Mural Conservancy of Los Angeles) and a group exhibition featuring a spectrum of painting aesthetic, BID27 introduced the art auction to Downtown LA. This once marginalized arena broke boundaries of how an art auction functions, its audience, and the works. For the first time, BID27LA auctioned the experience of an ephemeral performance featuring YOZMIT's Skywalker, a teleportation into the expansion of self. Framed through Future Eyes, YOZMIT's private performance shifted the dimensions of an auction and the experience of contemporary art. BID27 will host auctions once a month, for more information please visit bid27.com & save the date for May 15, 2014.
