Here it is, yet another art auction that is poised to achieve record breaking prices and notoriety. Who’s in the spotlight, who’s the next rising star? The works of blue-chip emerging artists and mid-career artists are acutely curated in the space of Milk Studios Gallery and at Phillips de Pury’s gallery on the third floor. The showcase itself is not to be missed, but the question is, what is it really all worth?
Phillips de Pury has 82 lots up for sale in Part I: Contemporary Art Auction. The likes of ANSELM REYLE, JULES DE BALINCOURT, MARK GROTJAHN, ZENG FANZHI, MARIKO MORI, UGO RONDINONE and ANDY WARHOL grace the auction. The prices may be a bit too steep for some, but it is a treat to see these works in person before they go into private collections. Get an insight on what the private collectors and institutions are aesthetically inclined on acquiring. It is highly encouraged that auction attendees, artists and art enthusiasts stop-by to the gallery to preview works up close and to "loupe" the pieces, prior to picking up their paddles.
