Christie’s Middle East

Springtime in Dubai heralds the return of two online auctions curated specially for the region. Watches Online: The Dubai Edit showcases an exquisite array of premier Swiss watchmakers, such as Patek Philippe, Rolex and Audemars Piguet, catering to first-time buyers and seasoned collectors. Preview these exceptional timepieces during the exhibition at our DIFC galleries from 23 to 30 April and bid online from 16 April. Modern and Contemporary Art Dubai features paintings and works of art that celebrate cross-cultural dialogues between modern and contemporary artists from the Middle East and the wider Global South. Reflecting Dubai’s dynamic and diverse cultural environment, the auction pays tribute to the rich artistic heritage of the region, featuring works by modern masters alongside pieces by internationally admired female artists. Bid online from 7 to 21 May.

As a contributor to the 2024 edition of the Diriyah Contemporary Art Biennale in Riyadh from 20 February to 24 May, Christie’s will offer a curated series of lectures, panel discussions and specialist-led tours. This year’s edition, entitled After Rain, aims to bring international recognition and awareness of the burgeoning art scene in Saudi Arabia, and we are proud to support the Diriyah Biennale Foundation’s commitment to promoting cultural dialogue within the country’s dynamic artistic landscape. The event, encompassing an exhibition of over 177 artworks by 100 artists from over 40 countries, alongside talks, performances, workshops and creative experiences, takes place in the JAX District in Diriyah, home to the UNESCO world heritage site of Al-Turaif.

Last year, Christie’s partnered with the Ministry of Culture and Youth, United Arab Emirates, and the Barjeel Art Foundation in which we staged Kawkaba and Emirati Art Reimagined: Hassan Sharif and the Contemporary Voices, the largest showcase of modern and contemporary art to be exhibited in London.

Visit us at the DIFC for a host of auction highlights, exhibitions, talks and events throughout the year. For more information on buying and selling at Christie’s Middle East, or our activities in the region, contact us now.
