It's with great pleasure that Les éditions esse presents the 4th edition of the benefit auction Vendu-Sold at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. This year, radio/TV host and columnist Pierre Therrien, with Jennifer Alleyn, will act as auctioneer. This fund-raising event will enable non-profit organization Les éditions esse to maintain its principal role of disseminating the work of artists and authors active in the contemporary arts milieu. Vendu-Sold 2012 also provides exceptional visibility for young Canadian artists of great talent.

The featured artists were chosen by a selection committee who vouch for the excellence of the selected works, comprising curator of the Hydro-Québec collection Anne-Claude Bacon, director of the Senvest collection Nadine Faraj, art consultant Matthieu Gauvin, independant curator Geneviève Goyer-Ouimette, and director of Les éditions esse Sylvette Babin.
