Bonhams, New York, 10/11 maggio 2012
Non solo Christie’s, Sotheby’s e Phillips de Pury. In questa calda primavera newyorkese fa capolino anche Bonhams, che inaugura il nuovo dipartimento di Arte Contemporanea con la sua prima vendita prevista per il 10 maggio 2012 (Evening Sale) con proposte nuove e fresche sul mercato. Le due aste, “Contemporary Part 1” e “Contemporary Part 2”, sono entrambe curate dai due nuovi capo dipartimento di New York Jennifer Yum (U.S. Head of Sales) e Jeremy Goldsmith (U.S. Director of the Contemporary Department).
Jennifer Yum ha commentato: “We are delighted to hold the inaugural Contemporary Art Sale in New York this May. Our offerings include fresh works to the market and works never sold at auction that will appeal to new and seasoned buyers alike. We look forward to this new and exciting endeavor.”
Tra gli highlights della vendita “Composition” di Franz Kline, del 1954, regalato direttamente dall’artista all’attuale proprietario come dono di nozze nel 1958, stimato $200,000-300,000; una scultura di bronzo (la numero 5 di una serie di 5) di Tom Sachs, “Love Birds”, stimata $125,000-175,000 e “Maria Callas” – dalla serie “Picture of Diamonds” – di Vik Muniz, stimata $100,000-150,000
La seconda parte della vendita “Contemporary Part 1” offrirà alcuni lavori – donati dagli artisti e mai comparsi in asta – in beneficenza, a favore del “Missing Peace Project”.
La seconda sessione “Contemporary Part 2” si svolgerà il giorno seguente, l’11 maggio. Tra i lotti in catalogo: Richard McLean “Trophy” (st. $30,000-40,000); Mel Ramos “I Still Get a Thrill When I See Bill #3” (st. $20,000-30,000); Julian Opie, “I Think I Usually…” (st. $30,000-50,000); Alexander Calder “Elliptique” (st. $35,000-45,000).
