Art in General’s DoubleBlind is a unique art auction where specially nominated artists are invited to photograph a single roll of film to be auctioned undeveloped and unseen. Like a time capsule, or a secret diary, these images ultimately represent the artist’s singular perspective, one only shared with the patrons who place the winning bids.

DoubleBlind 2013 was featured on Special cocktails provided by Absolut Art Bureau.
