The modern and contemporary art section of Sotheby’s Hong Kong’s spring auction line-up set a new record for the series in Asia, with a combined total of USD 289 million across three evening sales and two daytime sales. Led by two white-glove sales, namely the five-lot cross-category ICONS: Masterpieces from Across Time and Space (April 18) and the 45-lot Contemporary Art Evening Sale (April 19), the auctions witnessed numerous records, among them, increasing traction for younger artists.
