    The importance of Asia in the international world of art and antiques cannot be overstated. Christie’s today announced the opening of a new home and multi-purpose art space at Shanghai’s historic Bund.  With its combination of heritage and style the location is considered to be a perfect match for the global auction house.  Located in the heart of The Bund – the symbol of the city, Christie’s Shanghai is based in the Ampire Building, built in 1907 and part of the urban landscape over the past century.  The Shanghai autumn auctions on October 24 will feature a new category of Chinese Contemporary Design as well as an evening sale of Asian and Western 20th Century and Contemporary Art and a Prestigious Lifestyle sale. A private selling exhibition, The Art of The Horse, is to be the opening exhibition at Christie’s Shanghai on October 21.  It will tour and to Hong Kong in November.  Here are some examples from the Chinese Contemporary Design sale.
