The sale’s brief remains the same – postcard sized artworks (from £50) are auctioned anonymously – with the hope to raise £70,000 towards the Trust’s goal of eliminating hepatitis C in the UK by 2030. Stand-out lots include pieces by Grayson Perry, Brooklyn’s “ultra-contemporary” Clayton Schiff and RCA’s Miyeon Yi, an emerging artist whose work depicts memories attached to everyday objects.
