Anonymously Yours invites you to gamble: buy a work of art without knowing who has created it

I guess buying contemporary art is always a bit of a gamble, but Anonymously Yours is putting it to its extremes. If you’re buying a work of art from this exhibition in Brussels, you won’t know the name of the artist. Indeed: those names will only be unveiled when the exhibition is over. Anonymously Yours is focusing on the diversity of contemporary drawing practices, with works of art by 82 artists from Brussels. Each work of art is offered for sale for 400 €; well below the market value for most of the participating artists, the organisers claim. Anonymously Yours is still on view for three days (16, 17 & 18 December) at Maison Grégoire (close the Royal Observatory, Uccle), in a house designed by Belgian architect Henry Van de Velde. It has been operating since 1995 as an independent arts centre and has been run by Bn Projects for the past three years. The project has been set up as a fundraising event. All the works can be viewed on the Anonymously Yours site too, here.
