Contemporary Showcase: MEET AllRightsReserved
Time Out says
International auction house Sotheby's is partnering up with the ever-innovative team at AllRightsReserved for an exclusive online charity auction.
In case you're unfamiliar with the name, AllRightsReserved is the same Hong Kong-based creative studio that brought some of the coolest and most iconic public art to the city, including the Rubber Duck Project in 2013, the 1,600 Pandas world tour at PMQ in 2014, and most recently, the giant floating Kaws: Holiday that graced our shores in 2019.

At the auction, which will be held over one week from June 9 to 16, a stellar assemblage of limited-edition collectibles, as well as unique works by some of our generation's most established artists and designers will be up for grabs. These include a one-of-a-kind sculpture of Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman’s yellow rubber duck, various figurines and plush toy, and original artworks by Kaws, Verdy, Yu Nagaba, David Shrigley, and more.
100 percent of all proceeds will be donated to Tung Wah Group of Hospital's Share Love and Fight the Epidemic campaign, which gives short term financial aid to those unfortunate enough to be affected by the pandemic.
