Past Meets Present in a New Art Auction Called “Eye of the Collector”

In partnership with Christie’s and 30 international galleries.

Christie’s has partnered with a new type of auction called “Eye of the Collector.” Dubbed “A new fair for a new era,” the auction juxtaposes contemporary, modern, and ancient art in a way that serves as a portal to many disparate creative disciplines and in effect, acts as a time machine to the far throes of history.

Founder and CEO, Nazy Vassegh, states that “Eye of the Collector puts the art centre stage,” by offering an experience that is “free of booths and boundaries.” Hosted at London’s Two Temple Place, the artwork and objects on view are truly remarkable — from a Roman Torso of Bacchus, created in the 1st to 2nd Century AD, and A Greek Bronze Helmet of Illyrian, which dates even further back to the 5th and 6th Century BC, alongside modern masterpieces, such as Keith Haring’s Untitled (1984).

By removing the traditional grounds in which an auction takes place, Eye of the Collector aims to cultivate a space that serves as an educational experience that links work from 30 international galleries.

The fair launched today and will run in-person and online until September 11. Timed tickets for adults run for roughly $35 USD and can be purchased here.
