Launching the first of its kind, Christie’s presents ONE, a global 20th-century art auction spanning four cities in one relay-style format on 10 July. The multi-part, live sale will take place in real time across time zones, moving consecutively through the art world’s major hubs: Hong Kong, Paris, London and New York. Led by Christie’s principal auctioneers in each flagship saleroom, this reimagined sale experience will capture the excitement and drama of the gala evening sale for both in-person and online audiences around the world. With works by Picasso, Lichtenstein and Zao Wou-Ki, the global sale will bring together cross-category, cross-border art in one ultimate vision, marking an unprecedented event for this extraordinary time and beyond.
