• Event date 8 - 21 July
  • Event location New York

This July, Christie’s New York welcomes the summer season with three sequential online auctions that feature works by the defining artists of contemporary art. Contemporary Edition begins the week with over 150 works by some of the most in-demand names in the post-war and contemporary art market — from David Hockney and Andy Warhol to Keith Haring and Yayoi Kusama. Trespassing returns as the second leg of these auctions with ground-breaking pieces that trace graffiti’s influence on contemporary art. Explore the wide range of collecting categories by KAWS, Banksy and Invader alongside a selection of 1/1 NFTs by prominent artists in the space. First Open concludes the trilogy with a round-up of exceptional pieces by Ernie Barnes, Andy Warhol, Stanley Whitney, Lynne Drexler and others. Collection highlights include works from The Collection of Margo Leavin, Property from the Estate of Sondra Gilman and LA Cool: Property from the Laura Lee Stearns Collection.


Beginning 13 July, view the works in-person at our Rockefeller Center galleries.
