Anselm Kiefer's The Hierarchy of The Angels

This June Christie’s will present a fresh season of Post-War and Contemporary Art, which will include two focused auction platforms, Post-War to Present and Handpicked: 100 Works Selected by the Saatchi Gallery, as well as an exhibition titled Sacred Noise.

This June Christie’s will present a fresh season of Post-War and Contemporary Art, which will include two focused auction platforms, Post-War to Present and Handpicked: 100 Works Selected by the Saatchi Gallery, as well as an exhibition titled Sacred Noise. Post-War to Present will create new dialogues that situate contemporary artists within the framework of their artistic peers, demonstrating the synergy between artists of different generations across the globe. Launching in London, this new auction platform will also take place in New York annually in September and March, aligning the international calendars of Post-War and Contemporary Art Auctions at Christie’s. Following the success of the 2017 iterations in London and New York, Christie’s will stage Handpicked: 100 Works Selected by the Saatchi Gallery, a collaboration with the Saatchi Gallery that will present a selection of 100 works that reflect the Saatchi Gallery’s role in nurturing young artists across both live and online channels.

Francis Outred, Chairman and Head of Post-War and Contemporary Art, Christie’s: “Bridging the gap between London’s key auction seasons in March and October, our June focal point will engage with a global audience hungry to continue connecting with new talent, understanding and engaging with its role in the wider cultural firmament. The fresh, innovative auctions will situate contemporary artists alongside their historical peers offering a new perspective on the legacy and impact of artists practising throughout the 20th and 21st centuries. The season will be complemented by an ambitious exhibition that traces themes of religion and divinity, uniting artists in a common quest from Old Masters such as Titian through to Francis Bacon and Maurizio Cattelan. We look forward to welcoming clients in person and online this June.”
