Collector Mentorship Auction | SCOPE Foundation Stand
Bidding begins Oct 16, 5pm | Bidding ends Oct 19, 5pm
The SCOPE Foundation is excited to present its second annual Collector Mentorship Auction. During this silent auction young collectors will have the opportunity to bid on an hour of time donated by respected established collectors. By offering access to otherwise elusive information and experience, this entertaining auction will provide a chance for networking, educating young collectors and promoting philanthropy.

SCOPE Foundation’s silent auction features collectors, gallerists, curators and art advisers, including Flora Fairbairn, Louisa Buck, Kenny Schachter, Michael Hoppen, Tim Marlow, Sarah Thornton, Julia Peyton-Jones, Kay Saatchi, Frank Cohen, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Tot Taylor and Virginia Damsta. Young collectors and members at the Tate, ICA, Serpentine Gallery, Royal Academy and the Royal College of Art, The National Portrait Gallery, The Photographers Gallery, The Soho House, the Whitechapel, the Barbican Centre, the Art Fund, the Design Museum, the Hayward Gallery, and the Camden Arts Centre as well as fashion, music and design trendsetters have been invited to mingle, have a cocktail, and bid on the collector of their choice. The private hour may be redeemed within one year of the auction, and the setting is to be determined by the collector and the bidder.

Complimentary cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be served during the Collector Mentorship Auction Launch on Thursday, October 16th from 5-8pm during the exclusive SCOPE London FirstView. Auction winners will be announced upon the conclusion of the auction at 5pm on Sunday, October 19th prior to the final Collector Reception.
