Michael Klein’s Top Pick from the Canadian Art Foundation Auction

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.

Michael Klein, director, MKG127

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.
