Charity Auction

  1. It is the Biennale tradition to host a Charity Auction during the opening of the exhibition. Over the years, tens of thousand of pounds have been raised and donated to Rotary International's "End Polio Now" Charity and the Salvation Army. The charity cheque was presented by the Mayors of Kensington, Councillor Christopher Buckmaster in 2013 and Councillor Mrs Maighread Condon-Simmonds in 2015. Artworks by artists such as Andy Warhol, Pietro Annigoni and Jose Van Roy Dali have been presented.
  2. For the 2017 edition, the Biennale aims to beat last year's sum. Artworks will be donated once more by the Gagliardi Gallery in London.
