Introducing 20/21: A new era for the art world
New York & Online | April – May 2021

Beginning in New York this May, Christie’s will shift its approach to presenting the art of the 20th and 21st centuries in anticipation of a new era for the art world. Christie’s will now offer major auctions of ‘20th Century Art’ and ‘21st Century Art’, replacing the ‘Impressionist and Modern Art’ and ‘Post-War and Contemporary Art’ nomenclatures. The new format will underscore the radical nature of the modern masters and their lasting impact on the art being created today; emphasize the electricity and relevance of the art created over the past 40 years; and make room for the new — both physical and digital.
