Christie’s Frieze Week auctions will launch on 3 October 2017, including, for the first time, an auction that showcases two complementary collecting categories: Masterpieces of Design and Photography. Celebrating these art forms, the auction will bring new artistic dialogues to light, re-evaluating the masterpieces within the context of the 20th century. Art and design draw together aesthetics, technology, psychology and sociology, while both reflect and reinvent the world around us. Works by Julia Margaret Cameron, Gilbert & George, Robert Mapplethorpe, Helmut Newton and Thomas Demand will sit alongside pieces by Gio Ponti, Allen Jones, Finn Juhl, Carlo Mollino, Marc Newson and Gerrit Rietveld to form a vibrant element of London’s Frieze and PAD celebrations of contemporary disciplines. The works will be on view at Christie’s in London from 29 September to 3 October 2017, with highlights on view at Christie’s King Street, to coincide with London Design Festival from 16-20 September.
