50 Years New in Asia

2 023 marks the 50th anniversary of Sotheby’s in Asia, where we were the first international company to hold auctions in Hong Kong and establish a permanent presence in the region with the opening of our office. Today, Sotheby’s is much more than an auction house. Sotheby’s is destination for cultural expertise and appreciation. It is a hub for the most discerning collectors and lovers of fine arts and luxury in Asia as well as a gateway for the rest of the world to discover the cultural heritage and creativity of Asia.

To commemorate this momentous occasion, our anniversary year is overflowing with extraordinary events, exhibitions, and landmark auctions set to take place throughout the region. It is a celebration of a legacy that we have created hand in hand with our community of collectors here in Asia, and alongside the region’s great museums and institutions.

Sotheby’s 50 Years New in Asia honours both the important achievements and milestones of the past and visions of the future. As we celebrate the legacy of five decades, we also embark on the journey in the next era of Sotheby’s Asia, and the next 50 years to come.
