As the artistic season is blooming in Hong Kong this May, not only with the French May but also with all the myriad of beautiful exhibitions announced these three upcoming months, we are delighted to invite you to two events in May, part of our pillar for Arts and Culture.

We are also preparing other events in June and early July and will keep you posted on these very soon.

Stay tuned and let us know if you have any questions on this special and exclusive duet of events for May 2022.

CHRISTIE’S AUCTIONS AND LE GRAND GOUT FRANÇAIS (Francis Bacon, Adrian Ghenie and Hubert de Givenchy from Paris to Hong Kong)

Description of the Tour:

From Francis Bacon Retrospective in Paris 1971 to Francis Bacon & Adrian Ghenie Flesh & Soul Hong Kong May 2022.

His legendary retrospective at the Grand Palais, Paris, in October 1971, showing one hundred and eight Bacon works, probably affords him the greatest satisfaction of any of his exhibitions. At this time Francis Bacon was among the rare living artists to have been granted such an honour, another being Pablo Picasso in 1966.

From 21 to 29 May 2022 a joint exhibition of over 15 masterpieces by Francis Bacon and Adrian Ghenie, to be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, as a special highlight during the week of Christie’s Spring Preview and Auctions. This will be an event remarkable for its many “firsts” –the first Francis Bacon exhibition in Hong Kong, the first Adrian Ghenie exhibition in Asia, and the world’s first joint exhibition for the two iconic artists. After Hong Kong, the collection will travel to additional locations in Asia.

A major figure in the world of haute couture and fashion, just the name of Hubert de Givenchy embodies the quintessence of elegance, and much more broadly of le Grand Goût français. During his long life, he gathered an exceptional collection of furniture and works of art together with modern masterpieces which he arranged in his various homes with the same high standards, creativity and sense of absolute refinement as those he demonstrated as a couturier. Christie's has the great honour to announce the sale of his exceptional art collection. The collection is composed of masterworks from the elegant Hôtel d'Orrouer in Paris and the magical Château du Jonchet just a short drive south of the capital. From 21-26 May, 11 major pieces of the Givenchy collection will be exhibited at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, presenting an extremely fascinating opportunity to explore the harmony and balance that was created in Givenchy’s elegant estate.
