2074 | The 2024 Art Auction

Step into the future as Southern Exposure proudly presents 2074, our triumphant 50th anniversary art auction and fundraiser. We’ve been bringing you what’s new since 1974, and we can’t wait to see what the next 50 years will bring. Join us on Saturday, April 13, for a visionary evening showcasing over 140 of the Bay Area’s most celebrated emerging and established artists during an in-person and hybrid event we’ll be talking about for years to come. Time waits for no one, but art carries us all.

Our Main Event will feature both a silent and a live auction (led by esteemed Bonhams Auctioneer Aaron Bastian), showcasing over 140 pieces of radiant art from some of the Bay Area's most luminous new and established artists. Don’t miss the entertainment from local performers, delectable drinks by Barebottle Brew Co., delicious hors d'oeuvres by Work of Art Catering, and the joy of gathering with the vibrant SoEx community.

View the full list of participating artists and start bidding on your favorite pieces via our dedicated auction website. Peruse the stunning work in this year's auction via our catalog (available in late March). You may view the artwork in person by visiting the gallery Tues-Sat, noon-6PM, from March 30-April 11; you are also welcome to make a private appointment here
