NEW YORK, NY.- Christie’s announced that Sara Friedlander has been appointed SVP, Head of Department for the Post-War & Contemporary Art Department in New York. In this role, Ms. Friedlander will guide major business, mentoring and development of the specialist team, and the strategic growth of the New York sales. In addition, she continues as Head of the New York Evening Sale, working with the international team to win key business and bring exceptional works to the market.

Ms. Friedlander began her career at Christie's in 2006 in the PostWar and Contemporary Department, where her first project was working on the installation of 150 live pigeons sold as part of an installation by Kadar Attia in the Pierre Huber sale. Since joining, she has led and contributed to some of Christie’s most important auctions and consignments. As the head of the New York Evening Sale, Ms. Friedlander has overseen six of Christie’s most successful auctions, including the highest grossing sale of all time.
