Beginning on the 6th October and running until the 20th October, Tennants are hosts to the Urban and Contemporary Art Timed Auction in aid of York Food Bank. This timed charity auction is organised by Bombsquad, a York-based non-profit community arts organisation passionate about street and contemporary art. Bombsquad aims to enrich the cultural landscape of York whilst raising money for local charities.
Highlights include War Boutique’s “Metropolitan Peace Combat Swimmer Vest” 2022 (estimate: £1,000-1,200), Jo Peel’s “Cafe Restaurant” 2012 (estimate: £800-1,000), Dotmaster’s “Supreme Trash” 2018 (estimate: £800-1,000), and Rowdy’s “Moondile Mercenary” 2015 (estimate: £700-1,100).
The auction forms part of Totally Hammered, Bombsquad’s second fundraising event which brings together artists from the street and contemporary art worlds to raise urgently needed funds for York Food Bank. In addition to the timed auction, there will be a fundraising celebration event on 20th October at The Crescent Community Venue, York including live art demonstration, DJ, and free draw to the raffle with every ticket purchased.
