The Canadian Art Foundation’s annual auction takes place during our 20th anniversary Gala on September 17. In anticipation, we asked members of our art-advisory committee to select their favourite works on the auction block. We’ll be publishing their selections from September 8 to 12—our auction preview week, when all of the works will be on view at Waddington’s.

Valerie Kolakis, Back in 5 minutes, 2012.
I’m picking Valerie Kolakis’s Back in 5 Minutes, because it is perhaps the most temporal work I’ve seen in any of the past auctions. Also, I believe the push pin is the smallest and first solid-gold work ever in the auction.
