Adam Lindemann’s rare & exceptional art objects feature at Christie’s

Christie’s upcoming evening sale deeply engages in modernist design with Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons and other contemporary artists.

Auction house Christie’s will flaunt a fascinating collection, curated by Adam Lindemann, in its evening sale on March 9, 2023. A cultural innovator and art collector, Mr. Lindemann is known for his deep understanding of the zeitgeist and distinctive outlook on art business. He was an early champion of the most recognized and celebrated contemporary artists of today—including Jeff Koons, Richard Prince, Damien Hirst, and Urs Fischer, all of whom are represented in the sale.

Andy Warhol Electric Chair

Andy Warhol’s ‘Little Electric Chair’ (1964), estimated at $4,000,000 – 6,000,000.

The auction features sophisticated and singular design pieces, with a portion of proceeds reserved to support the Michael C. Rockefeller Wing for art of the peoples of sub-Saharan Africa, the Pacific Islands, and North, Central, and South America at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Alex Rotter, Christie’s Chairman, 20th and 21st Century Art, remarks, “Adam Lindemann is an artworld maverick. He is a true innovator with a deep understanding of the cultural zeitgeist. He collects with passion and purpose. In a way, his collection is a point of genesis for leading artists of this generation. Again and again, we have seen Adam Lindemann defy limitations, redefining artists’ markets. This Spring, Christie’s is thrilled to give the world ‘ADAM: Works from the Collection of Adam Lindemann’, a rare opportunity for astute collectors to buy the absolute finest pieces of contemporary art and design.”

Jeff Koons

Jeff Koon’s ‘Ushering in Banality’ (1988), estimated at $2,500,000 – 3,500,000.

The sale offers the finest piece collection of contemporary art and modernist design from the 20th and 21st centuries, as well as a motorcycle, Oceanic Art and NFTs. The collection will include major artworks by established icons such as Jeff Koons, Etel Adnan, and Takashi Murakami, as well as subversive creators who have pushed the boundaries of art – from Jim Nutt and Miyoko Ito to Beeple + Madonna.

A highlight of the sale is Mr. Warhol’s infamous work, ‘Little Electric Chair’ (1964). The most haunting and provocative work of the celebrated ‘Death and Disaster’ series, it is estimated to achieve $4,000,000-6,000,000.
