This season Christie’s presents a charity sale, We Are All Beirut dedicated to relieving the arts community following the devastating explosion this August. Offering a unique selection across art, design and jewelry sourced from our international and Middle Eastern teams, the auction and related programming seeks to unite the regional arts community through this noble cause.
Sale proceeds will benefit Arab Fund Arts & Culture (AFAC) a trusted NGO, to directly assist the arts community in Beirut with additional proceeds given to the Lebanese Red Cross from a section of the sale which was sourced by a trusted partnership with Arthaus Beirut.
AFAC will be pooling the resources towards redistributing financial support across all artistic fields, specifically targeting the arts scene in Beirut. Institutions such as the Sursock Museum and local galleries that suffered extensive damage will receive these proceeds, both in terms of repairing structural damages and via rehabilitation programmes that AFAC launched after the explosion.
As part of this charitable initiative, Christie’s is collaborating with strong Beirut based design and production companies. A dedicated e-catalogue will be designed by MFB Studio along with a dedicated video produced by Boo Productions to highlight key cultural figures’ generous support of this initiative.
