In Conversation: Specialists and Collectors on ONE and the Global Art Market

We invite you to join Christie’s 21st Century Art Team next week for two conversations on collecting. Both panels
feature notable collectors in discussion with leading Christie’s specialists in the Post War & Contemporary Art field.
Talking points will include how these collectors began their personal collections; an insider’s look into works on the

art collecting in these changing times.

  • Cross-Cultural Abstraction: From Impressionism
    to Contemporary Art

    Date & Time

    1 July, 1pm EST

    Artistic innovation has emerged from the cultural
    exchange among international artists. This talk will
    bring together a diverse range of abstract art
    and discuss the international dialogue and formal
    innovations among artists across cultures.

  • Figuratively Speaking: The Body in Art

    Date & Time

    8 July, 1pm EST

    The representation of the human body in art has
    taken many forms, from images of ideal beauty
    to those that focus on the body as a way to explore
    issues of identity. From Picasso’s Women of Algiers
    which draws upon the western tradition of the
    odalisque, to Barnett Newman’s address of the
    human body and spirit in his “zip” paintings, to
    Lynette Yiadom-Boakye’s enigmatic and
    imaginary portraits, this talk will bring together
    a diverse range of artists who's creative process
    centers on the body.
