Hosting its 3rd annual auction in Kuwait on 29 November 2012, JAMM, an independent strategic art advisory, featured over 60 works by emerging and established Arab, Iranian and international artists.
Over 60 works in a variety of media by contemporary Arab, Iranian and international artists were auctioned with the majority of lots estimated under $10,000, providing an opportunity for young collectors in the GCC region and beyond to start or to add to their collections of contemporary art.
The sale held on Thursday 29 November 2012 at the Contemporary Art Platform in Kuwait was conducted by Alexander Gilkes, former global marketing director and auctioneer for Phillips de Pury and co-founder of Paddle8.
The main and exclusive sponsor for the auction was TAG Heuer. “The sponsorship allowed us to prepare our third auction of contemporary Arab, Iranian and international art and to secure top-quality works. We hope that this is the beginning of a long-term relationship with TAG Heuer and that we will collaborate on other art-related projects in the future” said Sheikha Lulu Al-Sabah, founder of JAMM.
“…JAMM is also promoting the whole Middle East, showing to the world that there is a real artistic scene in this region…” commented Luc Decroix, General Manager of TAG Heuer Middle East. www.jamm-art.org
