Asian 20th Century & Contemporary Art

The Asian 20th Century & Contemporary Art department at Christie’s offers artworks by modern and contemporary masters from across China, Japan, Korea and Southeast Asia. Based in Hong Kong, the department maintains dedicated specialist teams in New York, Paris, Singapore, Jakarta, Seoul, Tokyo, Beijing, Shanghai and Taipei, reflecting global interest in the market while providing exceptional local expertise to Christie’s clients in every region.


By anticipating market trends and adapting to collectors’ evolving tastes, Christie’s Asian 20th Century & Contemporary Art department plays a pivotal role in shaping the way modern and contemporary Asian art is perceived in the international market. Christie’s was the first to present an Evening Sale in the category, and is currently the only international auction house to hold independent sales of Asian 20th Century & Contemporary Art in mainland China.


Through constant innovation and dedicated expertise, Christie’s is committed to expanding the accessibility and exposure of Asian 20th Century and Contemporary Art worldwide. We are proud to contribute to the growth of this important category within the global art market.
