NEW YORK, NY.- Global Auction House Christie’s announced today that it has launched a collaboration with leading NFT Marketplace OpenSea. Christie’s X OpenSea kicks off on December 1 with an on-chain auction hosted on Opensea.io and curated by Christie’s. Through the OpenSea platform, collectors can now discover and purchase Christie’s-curated NFTs via the Ethereum blockchain. The auction will be open for browsing on OpenSea.io December 1 – 3, and open for bidding December 4 – 7.

The sale features a cutting-edge selection of NFTs, a mix of collectibles and new 1/1’s, curated by Christie’s Specialist and Head of Digital and Online Sales Noah Davis, Crypto Collector and Curator Ronnie Pirovino, and nft now, leading Web3 digital medial platform for NFT coverage, curation and analysis. Highlights include Forever, by multidisciplinary artist Mad Dog Jones and Miami Vice Rocket by Tom Sachs.

Marcus Fox, Christie’s Global Managing Director of 20th / 21st Century Art, commented, “The digital art world moves at an incredible pace. As the marketplace continues to grow and develop, Christie’s is delighted to collaborate with OpenSea—the biggest NFT marketplace—to align the highest caliber and most frictionless transactions each party can provide. I see this as an important step forward in bringing the traditional and digital art worlds closer together.”

Noah Davis, Christie’s Specialist and Head of Digital and Online Sales, remarked, “With this collaboration, we are bringing the Christie’s brand boldly onto the blockchain. Our collaboration with OpenSea allows us to combine our expert curation and prestigious provenance with the convenience of decentralization. My hope is that this will be the beginning of a new era for NFT sales at Christie’s, where this amazing technology can be deployed to its full potential and help to onboard even more traditional contemporary art collectors to Web3.”

“The NFT world has been built by a dynamic community producing incredible art with sublime creativity, pushing the art world into new territory," said Alexander Bercow, Art Partnerships Lead at OpenSea. "Christie's is a globally-renowned art and luxury business that has shaped this industry for centuries.
