    Christie’s Frieze Week auction of Post-War and Contemporary Art in London on October 6 will bring together over 200 of the foremost names in the contemporary art world today. The sale focuses on artists who are the subjects of the most anticipated exhibitions this autumn, including Glenn Brown, David Hockney, Per Kirkeby, Gerald Laing, Thomas Schütte, Henry Taylor, Günther Uecker and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye.  The sale will be followed on the the same evening by the Italian Sale.  Together with the Leslie Waddington Collection on October 4 and the Post War and Contemporary Day Auction on October 7 it adds up to what Christie’s say is one of the most important weeks in the contemporary art-world calendar.

    Cristian Albu, Specialist, Head of the Post-War and Contemporary Art Evening Auction: ‘This October my aim was to put an emphasis on names that are fresh and relevant to the current art landscape and it is remarkable in the selection the number of artists who are currently the subject of major solo or participating in important group shows across the world. Alongside the Waddington Collection and the Italian Sale we are looking forward to seeing another season at Christie’s of the highest quality works alongside new talent that promises major results.’
