The latest updates about our sales and offices worldwide

Changes to our auction calendar, Private Sales opportunities and more

UPDATED AS OF 16 NOVEMBER 2020


Christie’s continues to review its global auction calendar in light of precautionary closures and travel restrictions. We remain committed to addressing the ongoing situation, including the reduction of non-essential business activities. Our thoughts are with all those directly affected by the virus.

As a reminder, all live auctions are enabled for remote bidding from desktop or mobile app via the Christie’s LIVE™ real-time bidding platform, as well as by phone and absentee bid. Saleroom auctions continue in regions where public health guidelines allow. Please see our online current calendar here.

Our colleagues remain at your disposal by email, telephone and other means to offer assistance and answer questions.

Offices update


Christie’s continues to monitor all global developments related to the COVID-19 virus outbreak, including adherence to the recommendations from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and local government guidelines. The health and well-being of our employees, our clients and our suppliers remains our highest priority.

Limited staff are currently on site to carry out services for upcoming sales, as well as ensuring the safety and security of our locations. Christie’s is also able to facilitate limited shipments and collections of property by appointment only.

Across all Christie’s offices we are ensuring arrangements are in place to protect the health and safety of our staff and clients. These measures include COVID-19 guidelines for all staff; increased hygiene measures including hand sanitisers and increased touch point cleaning; social distancing arrangements such as signage, floor markings, barriers and perspex screens at client service points; and availability of personal protective equipment. Some sale views will be by appointment only depending on local government guidelines to ensure social distancing with safe occupancy levels maintained at all times.

A full COVID-19 risk assessment has been produced for Christie's King Street site. This document outlines our arrangements to mitigate each key risk. This document can be viewed here. The risk assessment for our Victoria Street site in London can be viewed here.

Please contact the regional Client Services team through our online service or by telephone for any further information.
