Bid to win an edition by Ts̱ēmā!

10 of the first 20 bidders on June 19th will be drawn. Bid early and bid often! Early Bidders support the artists and our fundraising efforts – The Gattuso Edition is generously supported by La Fondation Emmanuelle Gattuso.

The Gattuso Edition What is Left by Ts̱ēmā, is a cluster of Canada’s now-defunct 1¢ copper coins, melted to their core material—and burnished by hand. Resembling naturally occurring copper nuggets, the transformation of the metal to its natural state and away from its use as a colonial currency reconnects the ore to its source in the land.


C The Visual Arts Foundation is thrilled to announce the 17th Annual C Magazine Contemporary Art Auction, hosted online at Waddington’s Auctioneers June 19-27, 2021. 68 artists, representing the extraordinary range of contemporary art across Canada, have generously donated work that reflects C Magazine’s mandate to provide a vital international forum devoted to the advancement of important ideas in visual art and culture, led by Canadians.
