Sotheby’s HK publishes revised 2020 schedule
Initially due to be staged in March, Sotheby’s spring sale in Hong Kong was postponed due to the outbreak of Covid-19 and the revised schedule has now been announced.
The week-long 2020 spring sale will be held on 5 to 11 July at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, featuring a wide range of rarities, including Chinese ceramics and paintings, modern and contemporary art, jewellery, watches and wine.
The event will feature three “Finest and Rarest Wines” sales on 5 to 7 July. Meanwhile, the auction house is hosting two online sales of rare whiskies and fine wines this month.
Kevin Ching, CEO of Sotheby’s Asia, commented: “Over the past month, we have witnessed enthusiastic participation from collectors in our online sales programme, driving solid results that demonstrate the resilience of the art market.
“As the situation stabilizes in Asia, we are pleased to confirm the full schedule of our Hong Kong Spring Sales, which always represent an unrivaled collecting opportunity for collectors and a flagship event in the global art scene. We very much look forward to welcoming our clients and would like to thank them for their patience and support during this unprecedented time.”
