MOCA Fresh Auction



By Hayley Miner

Tonight was the first preview night of MOCA’s FRESH auction at the
Geffen Contemporary.  Over 320 works of art were offered for sale,
some donated by the artists, others by various galleries from around
the world.  


The five immense walls were installed beautifully with works above a ledge where bright red and yellow bidding forms awaited eager


The well-heeled and the art junkies milled about in this lively setting on a glorious Cinco de Mayo evening!

Amid the countless outstanding works, a digital projection of Chrysanthemum flowers dancing on the wall by Jennifer Steinkamp caught everyone’s eye.  


A small Ed Ruscha drawing had a starting bid of $15,000.  Mark Ryden’s silkscreen and a really nice Catherine Opie
photograph both had a starting bid of $6000, though most of the works had very affordable minimum bids.  


Raymond Pettibon’s lithograph of “Inside a bookcase” had a very attractive value of $350 (minimum bid $50), donated by the artist.
