Christie’s Release | Frieze Week 2017: Innovative Line Up Of Curated, Cross-Category And Masterpiece Auctions In October London
London – This October during London’s Frieze Week, Christie’s will present a second major season of Post-War and Contemporary Art in 2017 at King Street, bringing together the very best in art and design across the 20th and 21st centuries. Following the successful move of the London auctions in March this year, Christie’s sales this October demonstrate a diversity that reflects the breadth and depth of taste across the international collecting community. Christie’s innovative programme will bring together five auctions and one exhibition, which will showcase the highest quality in not only painting, drawing and sculpture but also design and photography. On view at Christie’s King Street, London, from the 29 September; a selection of highlights will be on view in New York, Rockefeller Center from 8 to 12 September and Hong Kong from 18 to 21 September.
Francis Outred, Chairman and Head of Post War and Contemporary Art, EMERI “In recent years we have seen the growing importance both curatorially and commercially of London’s Frieze week in October. The art fairs, museums, galleries and auction houses together attract a huge global audience. This year the exhibitions in London’s museums and galleries are of the highest calibre: Jasper Johns at the Royal Academy, Jean-Michel Basquiat at Barbican, Rachel Whiteread at Tate and Brice Marden at Gagosian Gallery all stand out as highlights. Christie’s presentation this year is unlike anything we have ever seen before in October. When I began in this business, eighteen years ago, October was a mid-season auction with a value of around one million pounds and now we will have five auctions and one exhibition that cross all aspects of creative visual production in the 20th and 21st centuries. I am particularly excited by the ‘Masterpieces of Design and Photography’ auction since these two fields have huge potential and by creating this unique auction platform with price points at relatively accessible levels, we are looking to encourage both established and younger collectors to come together and experience the special excitement and drama of an Evening auction at Christie’s King street.”
