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.

For the 2022 edition, Vendu–Sold will take place virtually on the website of the BYDealers Auction House, from November 10 to 20. An exhibition bringing together the 35 works will also be presented simultaneously at Projet Casa. With twelve successful auctions held to date, Vendu–Sold has become a much-anticipated occasion for collectors and the entire arts community.
