“We have been closely monitoring the impact of the Covid-19 virus and the resulting travel restrictions. After careful consideration and reflection on nearly 50 years of working with our clients in Asia, we have made the strategic decision to continue to hold our major Modern and Contemporary Art auctions in April but relocate them to New York and to postpone the balance of our spring auctions to early July in Hong Kong.

April in New York represents the best possible venue and timing for our consignors of Modern and Contemporary art. We have scheduled these sales at times that will make it easy for our clients in Asia to participate and our global team stands ready to activate the international market for the great works of art we have assembled. Similarly, given the nature of the property and collectors in our other categories, we have decided to postpone those auctions until early July when we can safely hold a traveling exhibition across Asia and present our sale week in Hong Kong.

Sotheby’s is committed to designing the best possible sale context for our consignors and continuing to deliver the outstanding results that have helped us lead the Asian market for four years running. We look forward to resuming our normal Hong Kong schedule in the fall and are grateful for the patience and support of our clients and employees during this unprecedented time.”

– Kevin Ching, CEO of Sotheby’s Asia
