On Friday, August 31st, 2018 the museum Dhondt-Dhaenens organises the twelfth edition of its annual (Garden) Party which will take place in Flex XL Flanders Expo Gent. The Paddle8 Internet auction and the Christie’s live benefit auction are assured to be the highlights of the evening yet again.
The success of this evening is crucial for the museum as all proceeds of the evening go to the daily operation of the museum that strives to create an optimal exhibition context for the artists.
The artworks that are auctioned this evening are donated to the museum by artists, friendly galleries and passionate collectors.
