Christie’s is pleased to announce a curated selection of post-war and contemporary and Latin American art auction highlights will be on view in Austin, Texas from Tuesday, September 12 through Thursday, September 14, 2023. This special exhibition, taking place at The Loren Hotel, represents an exciting continuation of Christie’s regional residency programs throughout America.

Bonnie Brennan, President, Christie’s Americas, remarks, “At Christie’s, meeting the needs of our clients is of the utmost importance. With each iteration of our regional residency program, we continue to develop not simply our presence across the Americas, but deepen our relationships with clients of every generation. This fall, we have the distinct honor of staging an exhibition in the great city of Austin featuring highlights from three of our contemporary art sales: Post-War to Present, Latin American Art, and Prints and Multiples. We’ve taken note of Austin’s emergence as a hub for young collectors and we could not be more pleased to kick our fall season off in such a vibrant city.”

Christie’s has sold 8 of the 10 most important single-owner collections in history, including the Paul G. Allen Collection—the most valuable collection ever offered at auction (November 2022). In recent years, Christie’s has achieved the world record price for an artwork at auction (Leonardo da Vinci’s Salvator Mundi, 2017), for a 20th century artwork (Andy Warhol’s Shot Sage Blue Marilyn, 2022) and for a work by a living artist (Jeff Koons’ Rabbit, 2019).

Recent innovations at Christie’s include the groundbreaking sale of the first NFT for a digital work of art ever offered at a major auction house (Beeple’s Everydays, March 2021), with the unprecedented acceptance of cryptocurrency as a means of payment. As an industry leader in digital innovation, Christie’s also continues to pioneer new technologies that are redefining the business of art, including use of hologram technology to tour life-size 3D objects around the world, and the creation of viewing and bidding experiences that integrate augmented reality, global livestreaming, buy-now channels, and hybrid sales formats. 

Christie’s is dedicated to advancing responsible culture throughout its business and communities worldwide, including achieving sustainability by reducing our carbon emissions by 50% and pledging to be net zero by 2030, and actively using its platform in the art world to amplify under-represented voices and support positive change.
