Vendu–Sold is an annual contemporary art benefit auction created to ensure that Les éditions Esse, a not-for-profit organization, can continue to successfully promote and disseminate contemporary art and artists on the Canadian and international scenes. Advised by a committee of experts, the auction offers collectors and art lovers the opportunity to acquire high-quality artworks by renowned and emerging Canadian artists while contributing to the development of Les éditions Esse. Part of the proceeds also goes to the participating artists.

Since its first edition in 2009, Vendu–Sold has become a much-anticipated occasion for collectors and the entire arts community. Les éditions Esse wishes to express its sincere gratitude to all participating artists and galleries for their generous support and collaboration to this event.

For its 15th edition, Vendu-Sold is taking place virtually on the BYDealers Auction House website, from September 11 to 22. An exhibition bringing together the 46 works will also be presented simultaneously at the Guido Molinari Foundation.
