Dubai – From mirrored disco balls to painted diptychs, Christie’s Middle East is hosting a diverse ‘first look’ at some of the contemporary highlights of its forthcoming Modern and Contemporary Middle Eastern Art auctions, on show at Christie’s DIFC from 16 to 24 September 2022. At the same time, visitors can experience pieces from Robert Devereux’s Sina Jina Collection, underscoring the growing regional interest in African art.

Christie’s will hold its online sale of Contemporary Middle Eastern Art, from 12 October to 3 November as well as a live auction for Modern Middle Eastern Art on 2 November in London, supported by exhibitions and programming. The auctions present iconic piecesfrom the Arab World and Iran, including masterpieces of Mohammed Melehi, Monir
Farmanfarmaian and Etel Adnan. The auctions also present a more contemporary focus, including both emerging and established artists from the region such as Ali Cherri, Dana Awartani, Ahmed Mater, and YZ Kami.

“Creating and expanding a global platform for the appreciation and sale of artworks from the Middle East has been a key objective for Christie’s since 2005, and we are bringing some stellar sale highlights to the region. The opportunity to appreciate these works in person and discuss collecting trends with our specialists are among the benefits of Christie’s presence in the market,” said Dr. Ridha Moumni, Deputy Chairman, Christie’s Middle East.
