The Wisdom and Nature exhibition and auction 2021

Wisdom and Nature is a major fundraising exhibition and auction in aid of Le Ciel Foundation, held in partnership with Christie’s. The exhibition, which builds upon the success of the first edition of Wisdom and Nature, premiered at Christie’s New York in March 2020 and was auctioned online on from the 6-27th April 2021. 

About the Exhibition

Generously donated by artists and galleries from around the world, Wisdom and Nature features 55 artworks by 49 artists capturing experiences and perceptions of interconnectivity, the natural beauty of the planet, and the traditions of its communities. Funds raised from the auction will support Le Ciel Foundation’s ongoing education, inclusion and preservation initiatives including the Holistic Visions Training Program and Symposium. Bringing together 144 thought leaders, creatives and subject matter experts from over 30 countries with Elders from wisdom traditions, Holistic Visions is a collaborative journey designed to bring to life holistic, interconnected solutions that support the emergence of a more conscious world.
Funds will also support the development of new educational tools and programmes for children and adults to learn from ancestral wisdom, as well as a global initiative for the restoration of sacred territories and the protection of guardian populations.

Artists featured in the exhibition include Adam Waymouth, Adrian Houston, Alexander Khimushin, Anouska Beckwith, Antonio Obá, Aranka Israni, Azza Fahmy, Brigida Baltar, Carlito Dalceggio, Cássio Vasconcellos, Catalina Swinburn, Charlotte Leimer, Chloë Natalia, Christopher Roche, Daniel Garcia, David Kassman, Delfina Muñoz de Toro, Dimas Paredes Armas, Dominic Lam and Fabrizio Giacomelli, Gaston Ugalde, Henry and Richard Hudson, Joaquín Vila, Justin Brice Guariglia, Katy Lynton, Kito Mbiango, Llewellyn Xavier, Lucho Brieva, Lucy Temple, Malou Ericsson, Mamakan, Marshmallow Laser Feast, Mat Chivers, Odyssée Dao, Oliver Barnett, Paulo Nazareth, Peter Matthews, Philip Volkers, Regina Dejiménez, Roee Aminof, Roseline de Thélin, Ruben Brulat, Sidney Regis, Simon English, Sukhi Barber, Susan Derges, Takako Matoba, Tatyana Murray, Temple Jewels and Thia Konig.
