The Now Evening Auction is a portrait of the art of today, offering the most exciting, cutting-edge works on the market and providing a masterpiece context for well-established and newly canonized artists. From Yoshitomo Nara to Jadé Fadojutimi, Kerry James Marshall to Justin Caguiat, the auction provides heightened visibility and a relevant art historical context for a new generation of younger artists, establishing the masters of today and tomorrow.

This May, The Now Evening Auction combines critically acclaimed masterpieces by artists such as Yoshitomo Nara with the best of newly emerging artists such as Portia Zvavahera, Louise Bonnet and Njdeka Akunyili Crosby. Works by Nicole Eisenman and Simone Leigh see their creators critically reassess the canonical traditions of art history with a critical focus on representation, while paintings by Portia Zvavahera, Matthew Wong, and María Berrío offer enchanting aesthetic visions from the illusory realms between reality and dream. Taken together, the auction traces the arc of artistic production of the contemporary moment and examines many of the prevailing themes addressed by artists today, forming a dynamic and diverse portrait of the trends that invigorate the art and culture of our time.
