Christie’s has a fantastic new auction coming soon. If I Live I’ll See You Tuesday… grabs it’s title from a Richard Prince painting of the same name. We love the video that Director Gary Gardner put together to promote the sale. Follow professional skateborder Chris Martin through storage and the main galleries as highlights from the upcoming auction are revealed.
“We all have memories of a song or a melody that was so strong and perfect that it became ingrained in our minds and somehow formed the backdrop of our youth. The same can be said about art, and with this auction I have sought to bring together these special works that have left a lasting imprint on the visual hard drive of our generation. Jeff Koons’s Equilibrium series, Richard Prince’s Cowboys, Andy Warhol’s Electric Chairs, and Dan Colen’s Candle paintings all have this wow-factor that made them immediate modern day icons. If I Live I’ll See You Tuesday… will be a rare opportunity to see these radical works activating each other.” – Loïc Gouzer, International Senior Specialist.
