Southern Exposure’s Annual Fundraiser and Art Auction, AVANT GARDEN, features a live and silent art auction of work from over 120 incredible artists, delicious food and cocktails, and artist-led experiences. AVANT GARDEN will be a celebration of Southern Exposure’s cultivation of growing artists’ practices and the fecund creative ecosystem that our community has tended to for so many decades; commissioned artists will festoon the space with abundant installations, and as always there will be the cornucopia of innovative artworks that defines our auction. Not only is it a tremendously fun party and one of the largest annual gatherings of the SoEx community, the Auction is also a great opportunity for collectors of all levels to purchase contemporary art, all in support of Southern Exposure.

This highly anticipated event provides direct and critical support for Southern Exposure's programs and enables SoEx to continue supporting artists, presenting ambitious, groundbreaking programs, and serving as a critical center of visual arts activity in the Bay Area.
