NEW YORK, NY.- Bonhams has promoted Jacqueline Towers-Perkins to the position of Vice President, Director of Contemporary Art in New York with immediate effect. She was previously Head of Sale in New York and is an experienced auctioneer.

Since joining Bonhams in 2017, Jacqueline has been involved in many important sales and events. As Head of Sale, she brought the first mural by Keith Haring to market, achieving a new world record for the artist; she conceived and executed 'Paper Jam' - the New York CTP department’s first curated selling exhibition, and devised and coordinated the exhibition of the collection of visual arts patron and hip-hop icon Q-Tip from A Tribe Called Quest.

Jacqueline has also been on the rostrum for major charity auctions including Prince Charles’ Prince’s Trust in London; Jay-Z’s Shawn Carter Foundation in Florida; Children’s Burn Foundation in L.A.; Columbia University, New York; The Ordway Center for Performing Arts, Minnesota; and the New York Transit Museum in New York.

Jacqueline Towers-Perkins commented: 'I’m delighted to be taking on this new role at such an important time for the company as we continue to expand and develop our growth in the Contemporary Art market. Building on our exceptional results from earlier in the year, we are looking forward to an exciting Post-War & Contemporary Art Sale in November".

Bonhams Global Head of Post-War & Contemporary Art, Ralph Taylor, said: “In a short space of time, Jacqueline has become a widely respected and leading member of the team in New York, spearheading many important sales. She richly deserves this promotion.”
