This December, Sotheby’s is partnering with Creatives for Lebanon and Art for Beirut, two not-for-profit organisations created by the Lebanese diaspora in the wake of the tragic blast in Beirut on 4 August, to provide much-needed relief and funds to the people of Beirut through the medium of the arts. Comprising a handpicked selection of donations from leading contemporary artists, fashion designers and jewellery designers, ‘To Beirut with Love’ will be open for bidding from 7 – 15 December. Following the sale, in collaboration with IMPACT Lebanon and LIFE (Lebanese International Finance Executives), the proceeds will be shared amongst five charities, ensuring that the funds reach the areas that need it the most.

The charities chosen include Nusaned, Beit El Baraka and Baytna Baytak, whose focus is on shelter for displaced families and rehabilitating residential homes and local businesses, Al Fanar, a venture philanthropy organisation who provide support for social entrepreneurs and small businesses, and lastly House of Christmas, who will help preserve and protect heritage buildings.

From Emma Stone’s Elie Saab Dress last worn on the Oscars red carpet to Mick Jagger’s jacket from his 2017 European Tour, the sale offers a number of iconic fashion pieces. The sale also includes statement jewellery such as Damien Hirst’s gold Pill bracelet created in an edition of fifty in 2013. Other renowned artists represented with works in the sale include filmmakers Joana Hadjithomas & Khalil Joreige, photographer Fouad Elkoury and ground-breaking painter Huguette Caland.
