Christie’s Is Hosting a Second ‘Trespassing’ Sale

Featuring KAWS, Banksy and Invader.

Christie’s has announced a second offering of their online-only sale Trespassing, curated with proprietor Ronnie K. Pirovino. The sale centers around the influence of graffiti on contemporary art and spotlights the humor of the artists who work with the medium, featuring works by artists such as KAWS, Banksy and Invader, as well as Jonas Wood, George Condo and Allison Zuckerman.

The inaugural Trespassing, which was held in August 2020, was 210 percent sold by value and achieved numerous world records for art auctions for artists.

“We are thrilled to present the Trespassing sale again this summer, as the sale is a true multi-category collaborative effort with tremendous energy,” Lindsay Griffith, Head of Department, Prints and Multiples in New York, said in a press release. “We hope to again capture the interest of new and seasoned buyers globally with this mix of known and emerging artists and mediums.”

For the first time in a multi-category online sale at Christie’s, this year’s sale will also include NFTs, including selections from Mad Dog Jones, Victor Mosquera and Fvckrender. “The ethos of innovation is supported by a thrilling mix of contemporary art and NFT,” Pirovino said in a press release.

This year’s Trespassing will be held online July 9 to July 22 on Christie’s.
