HONG KONG – 5 MAY 2020 – Phillips is pleased to announce REFRESH:RELOAD, the first ever cross-category online-only auction assembled by its Asia team featuring a mix of collecting categories - spanning contemporary art, watches and jewellery. REFRESH:RELOAD reflects the fast-changing landscape of our age. We live in unprecedented times, and disruption provides an opportunity to reimagine what is normal – a chance to opt for a ‘soft refresh’ or ‘hard reload’.


“Our global Spring calendar this year is made up entirely of online-only sales and we have seen strong participation already,” said Delissa Handoko, Head of Online Sales, Hong Kong, Phillips. “At Phillips we have also seen a great deal of cross-category collecting, and as collectors’ tastes continue to evolve globally, we are excited to present this online-only sale. Curated in two complementary parts: ‘REFRESH’ embodies a more romantic and lighthearted aesthetic, bringing together colourful and fun contemporary artworks alongside elegant jewellery and timepieces. The second half of the sale, ‘RELOAD’ will see cutting-edge jewellery and watches offered alongside fresh, trend-setting art, editions and collectibles.”


The sale includes 180 lots and selected highlights will be exhibited in Phillips’ Hong Kong Gallery (by appointment only). Bidding opens on 20 May at 5pm HKT and will begin closing on 28 May at 10pm HKT. The entire sale will be available to browse on




Viewing: 20- 28 May, 2020, 10am to 6pm
