On the initiative of Arnaud Oliveux, the auctioneer of the house, Artcurial is joining forces for the first time with the Vaincre l'AVC Endowment Fund to support the actions undertaken within the framework of AVC Solidarité and Femmes and AVC, but also to finance screening campaigns for people at risk of stroke in the general public and to launch prevention campaigns at national level. A selection of 30 lots such as drawings, paintings, lithographs and sculptures, including major works by Richard Orlinski, JonOne, Gilles Barbier, Yue MinJun, Erró, Salvador Dalí and Wang Guangyi will be presented at this auction, which will take place on Wednesday 9th March at 7pm at the Hôtel Dassault. With a single bid of €1,000 for each lot offered at auction, this sale will be an opportunity to discover exceptional contemporary works.
The Vaincre l'AVC Endowment Fund works to promote research, improve care and facilitate stroke prevention. Professor Pierre Amarenco, President of the Vaincre l'AVC Endowment Fund and Head of the Neurology Department and the Stroke Reception and Treatment Centre at Bichat Hospital in Paris, states that "After the age of 25, 1 in 4 people in the world will have a stroke in their lifetime. In France, 1 in 5 people. Stroke is the leading cause of acquired disability in adults and the third leading cause of death worldwide." In order to inform and raise awareness of this cause, the speech "All together to beat stroke" hosted by Professor Pierre Amarenco will take place at 6.30pm on Wednesday 9th March 2022, before the start of the auction.
