Students of The Glasgow School of Art MFA programme are delighted to announce that this year’s auction will include works by Turner Prize nominees and winners such as Simon Starling, Luke Fowler, Jim Lambie, and Karla Black in addition to many other internationally renowned artists including  Ryan Gander and Teresa Margolles.

The annual MFA auction is produced by second year Master’s students. Proceeds from this year's auction will be going towards a post-degree projects initiated and organized by the graduation year in collaboration with art professionals in Glasgow and internationally. The auction remains an essential date in the diary of both established and developing art collectors, offering the opportunity to purchase work by internationally recognised contemporary artists and invest in works by artists who will become the stars of the future. With reserves on the works in the Silent Auction at £25, there is something for all budgets and tastes.

Staged at SWG3 exhibition space, the evening consists of two parts: a Silent Auction and a Live Auction. The Silent Auction allows bidders to view an exhibition of over fifty works in a variety of media produced by MFA students and other emerging artists.  Bids may be placed on these works during a two-hour period.

Saving the best for last, the Live Auction is the main event of the evening. From 8.30pm onwards, Campbell Armour, Director of Edinburgh auction house Lyon and Turnbull hosts a traditional auction. Here you can bid on works by some of the best established and emerging contemporary artists Scotland has produced, including David Shrigley, Alan Michael, Neil Clements, Michael Fullerton, Ciara Phillips, Beagles & Ramsay, Nicholas Party, Sam Ainsley and Duncan Campbell, as well as those from further afield.
