Ep 3—The Making of the (RED) Auction—The Power of Light

Miami | 5 December

On 5 December 2018, Sotheby’s, Gagosian and (RED) will hold the third (RED) auction. Curated by Sir David Adjaye and Theaster Gates and held at the iconic Moore Building in Miami, the auction will feature contemporary art and design donated by Jeff Koons, Marilyn Minter, Sean Scully, Sir Jony Ive, Marc Newson, Jennifer Guidi, Wangechi Mutu and other prominent artists and designers. All proceeds will go to the fight against AIDS. In addition, Sotheby's is holding an online (RED) auction from 15 November to 7 December featuring even more contemporary art and design. In Episode 3 of Sotheby’s 4-part video series, The Making of the (RED) Auction, (RED) co-founder, Bono, and Theaster Gates and Sir David Adjaye discuss Light, the theme of the sale. In the words of Theaster Gates,"light really was about, not only the illumination of the truth of the disease, but it was also about a kind of thoughtfulness and intentionality in relationship to darkness.”
