Liquid Glacial Table in (RED) auction supporting HIV/AIDS programmes and the Rebuild Foundation

Zaha Hadid Design with David Gill Gallery have created a unique red Liquid Glacial Table for the (RED) Auction 2018 curated by Bono, David Adjaye and Theaster Gates.

The auction includes pieces by Zaha Hadid Design, Ai Wei Wei, Jeff Koons, Frank Gehry, Marc Quinn, Theaster Gates and David Adjaye.

Previous (RED) auctions have cumulatively raised $68 million, with proceeds from this year’s auction supporting community-based HIV and AIDS programmes in Africa (Global Fund
to Fight Aids) and also community programmes in Chicago run by the Rebuild Foundation established by Theaster Gates.

Nominated by London’s Design Museum as one of the Designs of the Year in 2012, the Liquid Glacial Table comprises gentle waves and ripples beneath the flat surface of its table-top, while its legs pour from the horizontal in a vortex of water that seems frozen in time. The transparent acrylic amplifies this perception, adding depth and complexity through infinite refractions.

The pieces included in the (RED) Auctions will be exhibited by the Gagosian Gallery during Art Basel Miami at the city’s Moore Building from 1st December (World AIDS Day) until 7th December.

Sotheby’s will conduct a live auction on the evening of 5th December 2018.
