Artist Pension Trust ® (APT), which offers long-term financial security to select artists around the world, is to offer a selection of artworks from its vast holdings at auction for the first time. A total of 34 works from the collection will be included in Sotheby’s New York and London Contemporary Curated sales in March and April. Since launching in 2004, APT has compiled the world’s largest collection of international contemporary art, comprising nearly 13,000 artworks by 2,000 artists in 75 countries. Artists who participate in the program agree to deposit 20 artworks over a 20-year-period and these deposits are then gradually sold to benefit the trust’s members.
