Art Southampton Showcases Contemporary Works in Global Summer Destination

 

Christie’s International Real Estate and David Ogilvy & Associates Sponsors Event Celebrating Sculpture, Art, Architecture and Philanthropy

 

New York, New York (June 22, 2016) Art Southampton, the season’s most acclaimed contemporary and modern art fair, will feature over 60 prominent international galleries and showcase tens of millions of dollars’ worth of the finest museum quality art, sculpture, and photography from the 20th and 21st centuries.

 

Christie’s International Real Estate is the official luxury real estate sponsor of Art Southampton, which runs July 7 through 11 at the iconic Nova’s Ark Project. Together with its international affiliates, Christie’s International Real Estate will host an elegant booth at the main entrance of the fair, showcasing luxury residential property offerings from around the world. Romanian-born artist, Mihai Popa, who called himself Nova, established the 95-acre sculpture park and gallery complex in The Hamptons to promote a new paradigm for contemporary art melding art, architecture and philosophy.

 

David Ogilvy & Associates is honored to be an integral part of this cutting-edge event – one that defines the contemporary art scene and brings with it a mesh of collectors, curators and art enthusiasts from around the world,” said David Ogilvy, President, David Ogilvy & Associates. “We look forward to taking part for a second year in a row in this unique opportunity.”

 

 

“This event hosted by Nova’s Ark Project, captures the unique synergy between art and architecture,” says Kathy Coumou, Executive Director, Christie’s International Real Estate. “We are delighted to once again sponsor Art Southampton and showcase our top real estate listings from around the world, which themselves are works of art. Our effort also supports philanthropic initiatives, making this sponsorship all the more meaningful.”

 

The 2016 fair kicks-off with a VIP Preview Party, which will benefit the Parrish Art Museum and Southampton Hospital, on Thursday evening. Prominent collectors, curators, designers and decorators will have a sneak peak at this year’s offerings, which include blue chip modern and contemporary works from artists representing the emerging, mid-career, Post War and Pop eras.

 

Brooke Shields will co-curate The New York Academy of Art exhibition, Call of the Wild, with Academy President David Kratz. The show will feature paintings and sculptures by academy alumni that focus on the natural world and the animal kingdom.

 

Shark Tank host Kevin O’Leary will be on hand opening night to introduce his contemporary photography exhibition Irreconcilable Images, presented by Gallery Valentine. Sales of O’Leary’s photographs in the curated installation will benefit the Perry J. Cohen Foundation and aspiring Teenage Entrepreneurs.
