“Phillips has long-recognized the importance of digital engagement, and clients have embraced this new way of collecting, said Katherine Lukacher and Charlotte Gibbs, Co-Heads of Phillips’ Online-Only Sales. “Our entire team around the globe has worked quickly to adapt to these rapidly changing circumstances and we are happy to have the opportunity to connect with our collecting community during this difficult time, offering works by an exceptional group of artists and makers through this constant stream of activity on our digital platform. As we practice social distancing across the globe, it has been wonderful to see the many unique and creative ways that people are able to stay connected with one another and how they are sharing their reality through powerful imagery, beauty, and humor.”
