The Tusk Rhino Trail auction is the culmination of an extraordinary London-wide campaign launched to raise awareness of the plight of the rhino in Africa, and to celebrate the magnificence of this iconic animal through the medium of sculpture.
Twenty-one unique sculptures formed a trail across the capital, curated by Chris Westbrook. The artworks have been donated to Tusk by leading contemporary international artists including Marc Quinn, Zhang Huan, Gavin Turk and the Chapman Brothers.
Each individually designed and painted rhino sculpture will be sold – along with donated works of art by Tracey Emin, David Shrigley and Julian Opie – to raise vital funds to support Tusk’s ongoing conservation programmes across Africa.
Bidding in this auction will close on Tuesday, October 9th at 9:00pm BST (4:00pm EDT).
