Both online and private sales have been a great hit. Classic Art Houses like Christie’s ambitious selling exhibition of monumental sculptures will be held online across the summer.
Christie’s, the world’s leading art business, has been active in the new, digital enhancements launched including viewing rooms, webinars, live chat, expanded educational content and so on.
An ambitious selling exhibition of monumental sculpture entitled ‘Dream Big’ will be held online across the summer through Christie’s Private Sales. Using digital enhancements to bring the works to life online, most of the works will be sold in-situ from their current homes around the world – from Australia to Yorkshire and from San Francisco to Monaco. Over 50 works led by Ai Wei Wei, Jeff Koons, Nikki de Sant Phalle, Richard Serra, Robert Indiana and Lynn Chadwick values are from $100,000 to $10 million. The exhibition ran online from 25 June through the summer.
Alice de Roquemaurel, Head of Christie’s Private Sales for Post War and Contemporary Art in EMEA and David Kleiweg de Zwaan, Senior Director of Impressionist and Modern Art in New York said: “At a time when outdoor space at home is valued more than ever, this selling exhibition pays tribute to monumental sculpture by the greatest artists of the 20th century. The works will be presented thematically under “The Human Form”, “Nature” or “Abstraction”, from Rodin to McCarthy, whether in bronze, stone or steel.”
Christie’s also has a long and successful history conducting private sales for its clients in all categories, with emphasis on Post-War and Contemporary, Impressionist and Modern, Old Masters and Jewellery. Alongside regular sales online, Christie’s has a global presence in 46 countries, with 10 salerooms around the world including in London, New York, Paris, Geneva, Milan, Amsterdam, Dubai, Zürich, Hong Kong, and Shanghai.
