Works can be viewed in person from May 3 to 5 at Whitebox Art Center at 329 Broome Street in Manhattan.

The auction concludes on May 5 with a closing party and performance at Whitebox Art Center from 7 to 10pm. Bidding ends at 10pm. At the closing party, a digital projection installed by Artsy will display all live bids in real time as collectors from around the world participate in the auction online and on mobile devices.
