NEW YORK – There is no question that the many artists and artworks represented in the 13 May Contemporary Art Day sale are best understood by spending ample time viewing the pre-sale exhibition at Sotheby’s New York galleries beginning on 8 May. Featuring a strong selection of works spanning from the Postwar to the present day, the sale is filled with works by some of Contemporary Art’s most important names, from Alexander Calder and Joan Mitchell to Jonas Wood and Glenn Ligon. In an effort to distill some of what the Day sale has to offer, Sotheby’s partnered with Lighthouse Films to create a series of short films specifically for Instagram, four of which are shared below. #SeizeTheDay.
