HELLO! 30th Birthday Auction
9 MAY, 2018 (DOVER STREET MARKET, LONDON)


HELLO! magazine is celebrating its 30th birthday this month with a unique luxury fashion and celebrity experience-led auction.


Click Here to View the Auction Lots


Over the past three decades HELLO! has become the ‘magazine of record’, covering the most important royal and show business stories each week and celebrating the weddings, babies and family milestones of some of the world’s best-loved celebrities. At this time of celebration, HELLO! has utilised its glittering contact book to create 17 one-of-a-kind auction lots. 


We are delighted to announce that ALL profits from this special auction will be split between two charities which HELLO! is keen to recognise and support: Sentebale, of which Prince Harry is a founding patron, and 7: The David Beckham UNICEF Fund.


Sentebale: Prince Harry co-founded the charity with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho in 2006 in memory of both their mothers, Diana Princess of Wales and Queen Mamohato Bereng Seeiso. Sentebale – which means “forget-me-not” in Sesotho, the language spoken in Lesotho – provides healthcare and education to some of the most vulnerable children in the southern African country suffering from extreme poverty and the HIV/aids epidemic. “I always wanted to go to an AIDS country to carry on my mother’s legacy,” Prince Harry once vowed. “I don’t want to take over from her because I never will – I don’t think anyone can – but I want to try to carry on and make her proud.”


7: The David Beckham UNICEF Fund: Football legend and father-of-four David Beckham marked his ten years as a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF by launching the 7: The David Beckham UNICEF Fund in February 2015. The charity works around the world, particularly in Indonesia, Nepal, Uganda and El Salvador, with an aim to help children – especially girls – to deal with issues such as bullying, violence, child marriage, missed education and to help them achieve their potential. “I launched my own fund with UNICEF because I wanted to build a safer world for children,” he said. “When you see children walking around barefoot on glass, or those you know have HIV, that’s when it gets difficult because you think, ‘They’re the same age as my son or daughter.’”

14 MAY, 2018 (CANNES, FRANCE)


The Positive Planet Foundation is happy to announce its annual Gala Dinner to be held on May 14, during the Cannes International Film Festival.


Click Here to View the Auction Lots


Thanks to your support and generosity during the last edition of the Positive Gala Dinner, they were able to strengthen their impact in West and North Africa, the Middle East and in French priority neighborhoods.


Ever since 1998, Positive Planet has led over 500 initiatives in 35 different countries, trained 1.5 million beneficiaries, and supported 9.5 million children and institutions. Nearly 11 million people have benefited from their support since the beginning of Positive Planet. These numbers help to illustrate how essential our common approach and its positive outcomes are. By helping the most vulnerable, the world is becoming more peaceful, free, and sustainable for us and for future generations.


Positive Planet benefit from the support of committed celebrities such as Robert de Niro, Carole Bouquet, Naomi Campbell, Vincent Cassel, Emmanuelle Béart, Keziah Jones, Rita Ora, Gérard Depardieu, and many more.


This year is special, as Positive Planet will celebrate their 20-year anniversary; on this occasion, they are celebrating women in cinema. International figures from the film industry, the fashion, business, and non-profit world will be attending and committed to the cause. They will be honouring of rewarding Juliette Binoche for her entire life’s work and commitment.


An auction, orchestrated by Simon de Pury, will feature contemporary art pieces along with unique experiences. All proceeds from the evening will be donated to Positive Planet’s programs for women empowerment in Sub-Saharan Africa, Israel and Lebanon. The Positive Planet Foundation has been committed to this issue since its creation.


Thanks to your engagement and generosity, for which Positive Planet are eternally grateful, we have been able to strengthen our impact on the ground in over 35 countries during the last editions of the Positive Gala Dinner.


11 million beneficiaries is a lot, and yet still so little considering the extent of the needs to be met. We need to go further, which can only be done with your trust and support.


Together, let’s make the Positive Cinema Week an illustration of international solidarity with the most vulnerable populations. Let’s continue to work so that most people don’t have to rely on charity to guarantee their children’s and their own future with dignity.


Registration for the 2018 Positive Gala Dinner is now open.

Reservation for one seating: 2,000 €
Reservation for full table: 15,000 €


We are genuinely counting on your presence. Each and every one of us can change the world, let’s change it together.

Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation

Founded in 1998, the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation is dedicated to the long-term health and wellbeing of all Earth’s inhabitants. Through collaborative partnerships we support innovative projects that build climate resiliency, protect vulnerable wildlife from extinction, and restore balance to threatened ecosystems and communities.

LDF is currently underway supporting and funding more than 112 cutting-edge projects that directly address our climate crisis while protecting threatened ecosystems, endangered wildlife and indigenous communities in 48 countries and all 5 oceans.

Significant progress has been made in just the past year. The Foundation expanded our efforts to protect ocean ecosystems from destructive, rampant overfishing, to defend enormous swaths of rainforest against logging, to protect gorillas, elephants and black rhinos in Africa, to empower local indigenous tribes in the Amazon to protect their lands and rights, and to save wild tigers and snow leopards in Asia. Working hand in hand with our partners, local communities and leaders around the globe, we are making a difference.

We are extremely proud of all that we have achieved, but the threat facing our planet remains enormous – and time is quickly running out. The next several years are critical. We can move our planet in the right direction, but there is a lot of work to be done.

Charitable auctions like this one help us generate the funds necessary to empower our partners on the ground around the world. We are excited to share this amazing collection of artwork, unique items, and incredible experiences that have been so generously donated to our effort this year. All the funds raised through this effort will help us turn the tide in the battle to protect our beautiful planet.

The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation is a component fund of California Community Foundation, a registered 501 (c)(3) US organization. Gifts may be eligible for a tax deduction, please consult your tax advisor.

13 JUNE, 2016 (BASEL, SWITZERLAND)

UNAIDS is celebrating its 20th anniversary and is pleased to welcome you to its second annual “Where History is Made” Gala to benefit UNAIDS.

Thank you for joining us this evening to support UNAIDS work in significantly increasing access to HIV prevention and treatment services for women and children worldwide and to pay tribute to our distinguished honoree, former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan. We are proud and delighted to be able to honor him for his exceptional contribution to the global AIDS response.

Every four minutes, a child is infected with HIV. Without HIV treatment, half of all children living with HIV will die by the age of two and most will die before their fifth birthday. It is possible to prevent the deaths of children and mothers.

UNAIDS and partners recently launched Start Free Stay Free AIDS Free: Ending New Infections in Children, Adolescents and Young Women. This initiative aims at ending paediatric AIDS by making sure that we halt new infections in children, find children who have been missed and ensure they have access to lifesaving treatment, and prevent new infections in girls and young women.

You can make history by helping us to eliminate mother-to-child transmission of HIV and prevent thousands of deaths by supporting UNAIDS and our partners. With your help, we will soon be able to ensure that all children, everywhere, are born free from HIV.

Thank you so much and enjoy an inspiring evening to benefit children and families living with and affected by HIV.

UNAIDS Executive Director

UNAIDS Gala 2016

The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) leads and inspires the world to achieve its shared vision of zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS-related deaths.

Foundation Fighting Blindness
12 APRIL, 2016 (NEW YORK)

Simon de Pury

When Inga Rubenstein asked me to lend my services to help raise funds for the Foundation Fighting Blindness I did not hesitate one second. As someone devoting his life to visual arts I can not even begin to imagine what a life deprived of the capacity of seeing would be like. Her efforts such as the generous donations by Marc Quinn, Antony Gormley, Sante D'Orazio and Roy Nachum will clearly make a difference.

The Foundation Fighting Blindness was established in 1971 by a passionate group of individuals driven to overcome blinding eye diseases that were affecting themselves or loved ones. At the time, very little was known about these devastating retinal diseases that lead to blindness.

The Foundation’s goal was clear: To drive the research that would lead to preventions, treatments and vision restoration for retinal diseases – including macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa, and Usher syndrome – that together affect more than 10 million Americans and millions more throughout the world.

Today, the Foundation is a thriving national nonprofit and the world’s leading private source for inherited retinal disease research funding. FFB is committed to driving research until the entire spectrum of retinal degenerative diseases is eradicated.

MTV RE:DEFINE
8 APRIL, 2016 (DALLAS, TEXAS)

Simon de Pury

MTV conjures up fond memories for me going right back to its start. I was instantly addicted to it and glued to the screen 24/7. 'I want my MTV', the term coined by Dire Straits in their famous song 'Money for Nothing', spoke for a whole generation. Fast forward, and MTV today is a major media empire. It is laudable and exemplary to see how they use the fruits of their incredible success for an amazing philanthropic commitment. Georgia Arnold is the brilliant person who continues to untiringly spearhead these efforts.

George Michael is an artist whose immense talent has and continues to bring joy to millions around the world. Together with Kenny Goss they share their passion for art and their own formidable engagement to make this world a better place.

A number of artists have joined forces with MTV, the Goss-Michael Foundation and Dallas Contemporary to raise funds for HIV prevention and awareness, and the local arts community.

I am delighted to be conducting the live auction on 8th April. Amongst the many works that have been donated I have made a selection of ten works that I would like to highlight in particular which you can find on the de PURY website, the Paddle8 website, and marked in the gallery.

MTV RE:DEFINE returns for its fifth edition with the most impressive line-up of works to date. This dynamic auction, featuring work by Marc Quinn, Sterling Ruby, Enoc Perez, Dan Colen and many more is curated by Neville Wakefield.

Proceeds benefit the MTV Staying Alive Foundation and Dallas Contemporary.

A Visual Odyssey Selections from LAC (Lambert Art Collection) Staged by Jacques Grange
14 OCTOBER, 2015

Simon de Pury

This selection from LAC (Lambert Art Collection) demonstrates that collecting art is an artistic pursuit in its own right. Baroness Marion Lambert’s contribution to the collection has been incalculable. She has acquired a number of exceptional pieces, and these, combined with the works that were already in the Lambert family, make it a highly personal collection in which the common thread is a refined and bold taste. It’s a mix of high and low, of works from different periods and with different values, resolutely contemporary in feel.

It is most unusual to find in the same collection a French 18th-century bureau plat and cartonnier, outstanding 20thcentury decorative arts ranging from a gorgeous Jean Dunand screen to an exquisite Donald Judd desk, a collection of posters that students were plastering on the walls of Paris during the May revolts in 1968, a wonderful group of artworks by Richard Prince, Rudolf Stingel, Ugo Rondinone and Cindy Sherman, a Topolino car from the 1950s and fashion by Capucci.

Baroness Lambert and her late husband Philippe have been friends of mine over the years. At Marion’s request I have embarked on a number of fundraising initiatives to benefit charities dear to her heart such as the NSPCC, Human Rights Watch and Robert Wilson’s Watermill Centre, including the legendary auction of the LAC collection of contemporary photography, ‘Veronica’s Revenge’, which I conducted at Phillips de Pury & Company in New York in 2004. Last year Marion approached me to ask if I could help her with the dispersal of selections from LAC. We decided that it would be exciting to present this collection in the setting of a private home and found the ideal location in Ely House, built by Robert Taylor in Dover Street for the bishop of Ely in the 1770s. We would ask her old friend Jacques Grange to redecorate and install the exhibition. Baroness Lambert would help with the filming and editing of 47 video snippets of interviews with a number of distinguished individuals from the art world including Sir Norman Rosenthal, Ugo Rondinone and Philippe Ségalot.

I am excited at the opportunity to collaborate with Christie’s and to share the unique artistic vision and eclectic eye of the animator of the LAC Collection. 

 

Francis Outred

My first introduction to the Lambert Art Collection was the groundbreaking photography sale, ‘Veronica’s Revenge’, organised by Simon de Pury in 2004. For me, as an avid student of photography, this collection seemed not only to harness the greatest photographers of the past 60 years but also to create an entirely new forum for photographs as collectable objects.

The first time I met Baroness Lambert, who is responsible for the collection, I knew little about the particular objects we are working with today; I only had a general overview of what the collection promised. But I was immediately magnetised by the concept of bringing together objects from eight different categories, across three different centuries, from Chinese, Japanese and Islamic works of art to European furniture, photography, design and art from the 20th and 21st centuries; and like Simon de Pury, I felt this was something which had to be presented as a unique ensemble with a special mise-en-scène. Furthermore our aspiration was to create a cross-category auction with no hierarchy, universal access and values ranging from just £20 up to £3 million. In collaboration with de Pury, we have created an auction that is primarily online, defined by a unique presentation of the objects on different coloured backgrounds. 

The origins of this collection lie with the Lambert family in Belgium, whose matriarch helped to rebuild the banking dynasty after the war. The collection of Léon Lambert, the Baroness’s brother-inlaw, was sold at Christie’s in 1987, setting a new standard for sales of single-owner collections. The three Giacometti Grandes Femmes debout on the cover of that catalogue were once housed in the same room as the 18th-century bureau plat and cartonnier, handed down via the marriage of the present owner’s grandfather to his elegant spouse, Zoe de Rothschild, daughter of Gustave de Rothschild. This unique ensemble now forms the historical foundation of the auction. The perfect lines and symmetry of the bureau plat and its gilded decoration resonate with the gleaming, silverpatterned surface of the Rudolf Stingel and the glimmering metallic order of Plenarsaal, Brasilia, as photographed by Andreas Gursky. The tense dynamic of the exquisite Jean Dunand screen, first shown at Galerie Georges Petit, Paris, in 1922, with its prowling panther snarling at a coiled, hooded cobra, in turn reverberates with the deep urban underground origins of the masterpieces by Christopher Wool and Mark Bradford. It is when viewing the photographs of the items in the sale, as imaged by Simon de Pury, on their elegant yet egalitarian coloured backgrounds, that the parallels and visual similes become apparent – the creased, ridged amber surface of a glass lamp base, for instance, mirroring the crinkled metal patina of a contemporary Pae White tapestry. Delicate lacquered butterflies on oriental screens flutter into life in the bright-hued silken pleats of an haute-couture creation by Capucci. Similar juxtapositions can be savoured throughout the sale, where design, form, colour and concepts echo across the centuries. The wide range of age, culture and value only amplifies our appreciation of each object, enhanced by Jacques Grange’s mise-en-scène.

The Lambert Art Collection is the product of a restless, global mind and heart, and a curiosity that has been borne across the 20th century and is now brought into the 21st with an exciting online presentation. In true Lambert tradition, this sale is as pioneering as those which preceded it.
