NEW YORK, NY.- Christie’s New York kicked off Fall Marquee Week with the 21st Century Evening Sale live at its storied Rockefeller Center saleroom, on Tuesday, November 7, 2023. The evening’s total was $107,451,800 selling 95% by lot, and 95% hammer against low estimate. The 41-lot sale saw fantastic global participation with 66% of bidders from Americas, 18% from EMEA, and 16% from APAC. More than 10% of buyers were millennials. Christie’s set five records during the sale: Jenna Gribbon’s Regarding Me Regarding You and Me, brought $478,800; Jia Aili’s Combustion made $4,769,000; Jadé Fadojutimi’s A Thistle Throb achieved $1,683,500; Ilana Savdie’s A High-pitched Complicity sold for $201,600, and Lalanne’s Mouton de laine sold for $1,502,000—the highest total for a single Lalanne Mouton.

Since we began the 20/21 sale format two years ago, we have used this dynamic sale platform of the 21st Century Evening Sale to showcase best-in-class artwork by a diverse group of contemporary artists.
