LONDON.- Christie’s announced the launch of FIRST OPEN/LDN as part of the Global FIRST OPEN Auctions this September, including FIRST OPEN/NYC, FIRST OPEN/ASIA and FIRST OPEN/ONLINE. Taking place in South Kensington on 25 September, this carefully curated selection of 194 works with estimates ranging from £700 to £80,000, will showcase accessible works by global talent, including works by Damien Hirst, R.H. Quaytman, Marc Quinn, and Jannis Kounellis such as his painting Untitled from 1987, (estimate: £70,000-90,000). A key evolution for the Post-War & Contemporary Art sales in South Kensington, FIRST OPEN/LDN strives to be inclusive in its offering to collectors, both new and established.

Building on the established FIRST OPEN sales already occurring in New York, the launch of the London edition signals the start of a unified Post- War & Contemporary art brand, one synonymous with high caliber Post- War works, as well as young, cutting-edge and accessible contemporary art, such as Ida Ekblad’s Dubbed from 2010 (estimate: £6,000-8,000). The online element continues to offer curated selections on the e-commerce platform and will continue to engage our established clients as well as contemporary art aficionados and new collectors.

Christie's also announced a fantastic charity section in FIRST OPEN/LDN, sold to benefit The Eve Appeal, the UK’s only national charity raising funds for all five gynaecological cancers affecting women today. Forming a total of 11 lots, this group of works features an all-star roster of female artists – such as Lynette Yiadom-Boakye’s Marsh Warbler (estimate: £12,000-18,000), as well as works by Paula Rego, Mona Hatoum, Phyllida Barlow, and new, younger names which promise to excite.
