First Open │ Online

4 – 13 April 2017

Coinciding with the First Open auction in Christie's South Kensington this April, we are pleased to present a vibrant selection of works in our upcoming online-only auction that draw on the themes arising from the live auction taking place alongside it. Offering works by Katharina Grosse, George Condo and Ai Weiwei, this online auction aims to bring together contemporary works of all mediums and styles. One feature of this selection is a group of graffiti works from the collection of Martin Visser that emerge out of the artists’ captivation with urban landscapes. The blazing coloured tags and boldly designed images seem to be designed for the very cities they are inspired by. Also included this April online, is a small grouping of works that have very generously been donated in full by the artists or galleries in support of Children & the Arts - the only charity in the UK that delivers quality arts experiences to disadvantaged children through national programmes. By partnering arts venues with schools and children’s hospices to create sustainable programmes and experiences, they give those children who are at risk of being left behind, a more fulfilled, creative and exciting education.

To receive information about the auctions, upcoming events and more, please provide us with your email address.
