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.

A guide to bidding online or by telephone with Christie’s
All of Christie’s auctions are fully accessible for online browsing and bidding, meaning you can easily place a bid from the comfort of your home through Christie’s LIVE™, or alternatively by telephone. In 2019, over half of all bids placed were online, and for live auctions, telephone bids made up 41 per cent of winning bids versus 18 per cent within the saleroom — so you’re in good company.
From the Studio: A Charity Auction to Benefit amfAR Fund to Fight COVID-19
Christie’s and amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, are pleased to announce a new partnership devoted to raising critical funds for COVID-19 research through a dedicated global auction at Christie’s this June. After the rapid spread of the coronavirus this spring forced amfAR to cancel its annual fundraising Gala at Cannes, which last year raised $15 million in vital research funds, the two organizations are joining forces to bridge the gap in fundraising and use it as an opportunity to address the new and urgent threat of COVID-19.
