YBAs donate to Goldsmiths gallery fundraiser

Goldsmiths has revealed the list of its alumni who have donated artworks for its gallery fundraising auction. Blouin Artinfo reports:

The works, by the likes of Antony Gormley, Damien Hirst, Sarah Lucas, Julian Opie, Sam Taylor-Johnson, and Steve McQueen, will be auctioned during Christie’s Post-War and Contemporary Art Day Sale on February 12, 2015 in London. 

The money raised from the donated works, which include Damien Hirst’s “Ipratropium Bromide” (estimate: £250,000 - £350,000), Sarah Lucas’ “Nahuiolin” (estimate: £120,000 - £180,000), and Antony Gormley’s “Another Time XX” (estimate: £120,000 - £180,000), will go towards the £2.8 million needed to build the Gallery, all of which will be funded by external donations.
