Following a successful launch in 2014, the art and charity event Treasures for the Future created by STUDIO EKATERINA holds its second edition in the UNESCO House in Paris, May 2016. The event serves a dual goal: on the one hand to support Ivorian association ASAPSU with its medical projects focused on communities, and on the other hand to support contemporary artists from around the world.

 

The artistic program will include a variety of events such as a contemporary art exhibition, a round table with the participation of committed experts in art and culture, a musical performance, and finally a charity art auction conducted by Jeanne Calmont, auctioneer and specialist from SOTHEBY’s contemporary art department. The official opening will be by our guest of honor M Philippe Couperie Eiffel. There will be a book presentation and sale organised by the Association Amis de Gustave Eiffel. Books purchased during the sale will be signed by M Philippe Couperie Eiffel in person.

 

The funds raised through the art auction will largely be donated to ASAPSU in support of their medical projects for the prevention and treatment of intestinal infections among schoolchildren in remote regions of Ivory Coast. The remaining part will be used to support the participating artists.
