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. The closing party also features a sound installation, “Warm-up,” by interdisciplinary artist Audra Wolowiec.
