VENDU—SOLD 2011 catalogue

The Vendu-Sold 2011 catalogue presents a reflection on the question of cultural sponsorship and on the interconnections between the art and business worlds. It offers a brief history of Canadian and international patronage, a portrait of some organizations that operate within the business sector and of companies in Quebec that maintain contemporary art collections, an overview of the new Visual Arts Awards, and an interview with three collectors and art patrons, Phyllis Lambert, Joe Battat, and Pierre Bourgie. The book also includes a presentation of the works and artistic statements of the 41 Canadian artists participating in the 2011 Vendu-Sold auction.
