NEW YORK, NY.-
On January 28, Christies
will launch its most accessible sale yet. Christies 100 is an online-only sale encompassing nearly 100 lots, many with starting bids of $100. Assembled by the New York Post-War and Contemporary Art department, the sale includes works by both emerging and established artists assembled to appeal to a wide range of collectors. Leading the sale are collectible works by Yayoi Kusama, KAWS and Robert Indiana, offered alongside eye-catching photographs by Ryan McGinley and Vera Lutter, as well as charming works on paper by Yves Tinguely, Barnaby Furnas and Richard Pettibone. Bidding will be open from January 28 - February 5.
Noah Davis, Specialist, Post-War and Contemporary Art, remarked: Its been a goal to introduce a venue like Christies 100 ever since I started putting together online sales, and after the encouraging success weve had selling online over the last few years, its finally here. We settled on the 100 model to keep the sale tightly curated and so that no starting bid would be beyond striking distance for the fullest spectrum of bidders. Establishing this new level of inclusivity means collecting contemporary art has never been easier.
