The Filthy Fox Auction Club, an artist-run auction ‘club’ based in London, presents its second round, featuring its fine selection of 14 emerging artists from London’s colleges. This year’s artists are from across Central Saint Martins, Goldsmiths, Slade and Royal College of Art. The event will also include selected art performances.
The aim of the event is to present emerging talent and promote art investing focusing on original artworks – starting from as little as £ 50 – from paintings to drawings, photography, prints and sculpture

The Filthy Fox Auction Club is an artist-run auction club founded by Alexandra Hochgürtel and Paula Parole. Being part of the art college eco-system, they realised that even though art graduates have massive potential, they have few opportunities to sustain their practice post-graduation. They made it their mission to promote emerging talent from London, which needs to be seen – giving them a stage and supporting their independence by selling artworks directly through them. They believe art auctioning is one of the most exciting and fun things in the art industry and should be for everyone.
The artists represented receive 100% of the raised money, and FFCA take a commission fee on top of the hammer price of 20 % to fund their next auction. The auctions are broadcast on Instagram-Live, where people can bid from anywhere worldwide. The transportation from London is covered by the buyer.
The Filthy Fox Auction Club aims to democratise and dedust the rigid art + auction market and make space for new voices. FFAC’s core values are transparency, playfulness, fairness, accessibility, and inclusivity.
