The Art World Becomes One: Asian 20th Century Contemporary Art and Post-War and Contemporary Art (English)


The East and West have engaged in a complex and inspiring dialogue throughout art history. As a visual medium, art represents a global language through which artists challenge boundaries and communicate universal themes.

This season, our specialists in Hong Kong and New York have joined together to discuss highlights from upcoming sales that bring this cross-cultural conversation into focus.  In this video, Eric Chang, International Director of Asian 20th & Contemporary Art, Hong Kong, Robert Manley, International Director and Specialist Head of Post-War and Contemporary Art, New York, and Koji Inoue, Specialist Head of Evening Sales of Post-War and Contemporary Art, New York, will compare select Asian works alongside western highlights of a similar period, and in doing so, shed light on art’s role in bringing together the world’s diverse cultures.
