Buddies is proud to unveil its annual fundraising auction – reimagined. This year you’ll find the sexy standards you’ve come to expect along with a curated line-up of contemporary art by Toronto’s hottest established and emerging artists. ArtAttack is a chance for art collectors to catch fresh new work and for cultural trailblazers to take home coveted design treasures and enchanting excursions at a steal – all while supporting Canada’s home for Queer Culture.

Buddies has put itself in the skilled hands of three curators, Sholem Krishtalka, Stephanie Rogerson and Ryan G. Hinds, who will infuse the auction with new life. They have scoured the city for hot, smart, contemporary art that reflects Buddies’ mandate to challenge assumptions and push boundaries. ArtAttack includes both new and established artists who are making exciting contributions to Toronto’s art scene such as Chris Ablett, Liss Platt, Shannon Taylor, Kevin Charlie, Tanja-Tiziana, Amy Lockhart, Chris Curreri, Robyn Cumming, Oliver Husain, Cecilia Berkovic and David Grenier.
