The famed two auction houses are set to host a collaborative sale in Hong Kong this November.
For the first time, Phillips and Poly Auction will be joining hands to offer collectors and art enthusiasts an opportunity to view collections that feature the very best of 20th century and contemporary art.
Partnering with China’s leading auction house Poly is a monumental step for Phillips. “As Asia continues to rise as an important art market region, this mutually beneficial partnership will enable Phillips to establish a broader foothold across Greater China, whilst offering Poly our global reach and commitment to expanding our presence further in this important market,” explains Edward Dolman, CEO of Phillips.
Relatively new on the auction scene since its opening of its Asian headquarters in Hong Kong in 2015, Phillips has already gained increasing presence and popularity on this side of the world. This joint venture with Poly will be Phillips’ ninth auction series in Hong Kong. Expected to follow suit from its previous eight auctions, the sales in November is estimated to see record breaking results as well.
Innovation is in Phillips’ DNA and we are excited by the opportunity to partner with Poly this season. This unique initiative starts now; our specialist teams will work together to assemble and stage an unrivalled series of 20th Century & Contemporary Art auctions this November, says Jonathan Crockett, Chairman of Phillips Asia.
In the November auction, guests and collectors can expect to see paintings, sculptures and other forms of media represented by both internationally acclaimed artists in the Evening Sale and emerging talents for the Day Sale at JW Marriott, Hong Kong.
