In addition, a specially curated 10th Anniversary themed exhibition in partnership with The Art Newspaper China will be on display at Christie’s Shanghai art space, complemented by a diverse programme of inspiring and educational events, including art forums, talks and specialist tours.

Francis Belin, President, Christie’s Asia Pacific, commented, “Mainland China has always been a pivotal and influential market for Christie’s. As we celebrate the 10th Shanghai Auction Anniversary, we are thrilled to present sales and events meticulously curated to reflect the evolving tastes of Chinese collectors over the past decade. This milestone is more than a celebration; it acknowledges the significant contributions this market has made to our business. Robust participation and an influx of new buyers from mainland China to Christie’s globally this year underlines the strong market interest and potential here. From continual investments in our permanent gallery spaces in Shanghai and Beijing, to the pioneering innovations across our Chinese digital channels, the last 10 years has underscored Christie’s unwavering commitment to the empowerment of Chinese collectors and the promotion of Chinese art – a commitment we intend to uphold and deepen in the coming decade and beyond.”

Rebecca Yang, Chairman, Christie’s China, added, “As the first international auction house licensed to independently hold auctions in mainland China in 2013, we take great pride in having contributed to the tremendous growth of its art ecosystem. With the continued support of the government, our esteemed clients, and the broader art community, we eagerly anticipate engaging seasoned and new collectors, as well as art lovers, with an exciting lineup of sales and events for our 10th Shanghai Auction Anniversary.”
