Bidding Procedures

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE PRESENT AT THE OCTOBER 23 GALA TO BUY GREAT ART!

Works in the silent and live auctions at the October 23 gala can be identified by lot number on the bid sheets hung next to each piece at The Rachofsky House. To bid on an artwork in the silent auction, guests may enter their paddle number and bid amount, noting the required bidding increments. Any work, at amfAR and TWO x TWO’s discretion, is eligible to be included in the live auction during the gala dinner; works chosen as live auction items will be labeled as such no later than Friday, October 22, 2021.

If you are unable to attend TWO x TWO for AIDS and Art on Saturday, October 23, and would like to place a bid on a live or silent auction lot, you may complete the Absentee Bid Form and submit it by Friday, October 22. A TWO x TWO auction representative can bid on your behalf up to your pre-set maximum bid. If the work is part of the live auction, you may also be on the phone with an auction representative to place your bids during the live auction.

Works in the OWNitNOW auction are accompanied by icons indicating they are part of the OWNitNOW pre-auction. These works will be for sale during the preview period from Monday, October 11 to Friday, October 22.

Successful bidders, including absentee bidders, will be notified no later than Monday, October 25. Please review the CONDITIONS OF SALE for more information about winning bids.
