  • Property Sold to Benefit the Cuperior Residency, Berlin


    The idea for the Cuperior Residency in Berlin was born out of the Cuperior Collection of contemporary art, founded by Oliver Elst in 2016. Through 3-month residencies followed by solo exhibitions, the Cuperior Residency’s goal will be to support young, emerging artists by providing an international platform from which to develop their practices and increase their art world presence. Phillips will donate a portion of the revenue from the sale of this Lot directly to the Cuperior Residency, and is pleased to support this initiative and the artists it will support.
