HONG KONG.- Christie’s is partnering with the Asian Cultural Council in presenting three important artworks by three major Chinese contemporary artists to be auctioned in the Modern and Contemporary Art Evening Sale on 10th July, 2020.

Proceeds will benefit ACC, a nonprofit foundation that provides artists, scholars, and arts professionals opportunities for international cultural exchange in Asia and the United States. Through fellowships, grants, achievement awards, public programs, alumni engagement, and other cultural exchange initiatives, ACC invests in individuals whose work advances international dialogue, understanding, and respect across borders.

The three artworks have been donated by esteemed ACC alumni and supporters. Cai Guo-Qiang arrived in New York in 1995 for his year-long ACC Fellowship. Liu Wei received an ACC Fellowship in 2011 to engage with New York’s vibrant contemporary art landscape. Zhang Huan is the only artist represented in this special section who is not an alumnus of the ACC grant program, rendering his donation all the more inspiring.

Cai Guo-Qiang’s Peony and Dahlia No. 2 was featured in the artist’s solo exhibition at the Museo Nacional del Prado in 2017, and was created on-site in Madrid. It will be the first colored gunpowder work by Cai to be offered at auction. Liu Wei’s East blends vibrant oil on canvas to create a shimmering abstract painting, while Zhang Huan’s Horse No. 2 evokes spiritual undertones with his delicate use of incense ash.

Each of these exceptional and unique works showcase a diverse range of contemporary techniques. Christie’s is delighted to be offering these works on our global auction platform.
