This year's auction reflects the exhilarating Brooklyn art world and its myriad artists — including Tauba Auerbach, Dustin Yellin, David Benjamin Sherry and Mariah Robertson — alongside blue-chip works by Ellsworth Kelly, Cindy Sherman, Louise Nevelson, William Kentridge and Andy Warhol, among others. The auction underscores BAMart's continued commitment to the growing community of visual artists based in Brooklyn while celebrating BAM's 150th anniversary alongside the next generation of supporters. With works across all media — from painting and prints to photos and sculpture — and bids beginning at $200, there is something for every collector out there.
