Christie's Benefit Exhibition to Support WMF's Ukraine Heritage Response Fund
This April and May, Christie’s will offer an international program of exhibition and sales initiatives from London to New York to benefit Ukraine.
Beginning April 25, Christie’s in London presents Safeguarding the Irreplaceable: A Selling Exhibition to Benefit the Ukraine Heritage Response Fund at World Monuments Fund. Spanning the early twentieth century to the present, the artists featured in this tri-part exhibition are Ukrainian-born; identify with Ukrainian roots; were active in Ukraine; or are contemporary artists in the Ukrainian diaspora. Works available for purchase to benefit the WMF will remain on view at Christie’s King Street galleries through May 5th and an online viewing room accessible to collectors worldwide will complement the exhibition until the end of May.
Christie's partnership with World Monuments Fund will support immediate action to protect Ukraine's cultural heritage from further damage and lay the foundation for future recovery. A portion of the sale’s proceeds will directly benefit WMF’s newly formed Ukraine Heritage Response Fund. Consignors will donate a significant percentage of the proceeds, and Christie’s will also donate most of its commission.
