Christie's | Fine Art Auction House

Post-War and Contemporary Art

First Open

Since its launch in the spring of 2005, Christie's First Open sales have become a fixture on the global contemporary art circuit, providing the perfect venue for new and seasoned collectors to discover emerging artists and to explore lesser-known works by well-established names. The results show that Christie's specialists have found the exact formula to attract not only collectors but also connoisseurs of abstraction and conceptualism hunting for works not seen on the market for decades. Sales are held twice-yearly in New York.
