Additional Sale Initiatives to be Announced in Due Course
In light of the ongoing impact of the Covid-19 virus outbreak, Sotheby’s has made the decision to relocate our Hong Kong Modern and Contemporary Art Sales back to Hong Kong in July. The three auctions - Modern Art Evening Sale and Contemporary Art Evening & Day Sales – originally scheduled to be offered on 16 April in New York – will be moved to the week of 5 July in Hong Kong to join the balance of our spring auction series. Travelling exhibitions in Hong Kong (27 – 28 March) and Taipei (4 – 5 April) will also be postponed, with new dates to be announced in due course.
Kevin Ching, CEO of Sotheby’s Asia, comments: “In reviewing our sale schedule, we have taken into consideration the advice from government and health authorities, the requirements of our clients, and logistical and operational feasibility. As the situation stabilizes in Asia, the relocation of these sales back to Hong Kong will provide the best possible sale context for our consignors and buyers.”
In addition to live auctions, Sotheby’s continues to offer a range of sale opportunities and formats, including private sale and online auctions, to maximize flexibility in meeting our clients’ needs during this period.
Sotheby’s will shortly be announcing additional sales initiatives to take place in Hong Kong from April – June across multiple channels designed to meet the market demand for transacting across collecting categories. Despite the current challenges, collectors continue to look for opportunities to buy and sell great art.
