Works by artists such as Tracey Emin, Jeff Koons and Keith Haring will go under the hammer for Elton John's AIDS charity in November.

Sotheby’s Contemporary Art Day Sale will take place on 10 November 2011 in New York, with proceeds benefitting the initiatives of the Elton John AIDS Foundation. The auction is part of a series of art-related events that will help mark the 20th year of the organization in 2012.

“All of us at EJAF are tremendously grateful to Sotheby’s and to all of the amazing artists who have so generously contributed truly special pieces to the charity lots for this auction,” said Sir Elton John. “I am inspired by their great generosity as we kick-off our fund-raising efforts for the 20th year of the Foundation’s work.”

“Sotheby’s is delighted to support the remarkable work of the Elton John AIDS Foundation in our upcoming Contemporary sale,” said Tobias Meyer, Worldwide Director of Contemporary Art at Sotheby’s. “The works on offer in November have been donated directly from an enticing mix of today’s leading contemporary artists, and their connection to the EJAF is certain to appeal to a wide range of today’s collectors and philanthropists.”
