Contemporary Art

In 2016, Mossgreen announced a new series of Contemporary Art Auctions – the only auction house in Australia to stage sales of this kind. These multi-vendor sales will offer key works created after 1970 by Contemporary artists from Australia and overseas.

This initiative recognises the shift that has occurred internationally in recent years with auction sales of Contemporary art surpassing those of Old Master and Modern art sales. The aim is to establish a secondary market for artists who are at the forefront of Contemporary art, but to date, have not been fully promoted in the secondary market.

To ensure the quality and rigour of the Contemporary auction, Mossgreen has developed a set of criteria, seeking significant works by the most important contemporary artists. The works included in each auction will be carefully selected and presented as a curated exhibition.

Mossgreen is taking a carefully considered, academic and long-term approach to the development of the auction series. In doing so, Mossgreen seeks to collaborate closely with all stakeholders: the collectors, artists, dealers, representatives, writers and commentators.
