Phillips Southampton Opens with Special Exhibition Featuring Basquiat Work

By whitewall

August 21, 2020

Last week, Phillips opened a new location in Southampton, NY, in the historic structure that once served as the town hall. Redesigned with the help of studioMDA, the two-story, 6,000 square-feet structure will serve as a location for exhibitions, curated presentations of auction highlights, and other programming.

“In converting the historic Southampton Town Hall to a contemporary space, we are engaging with the East End community while enriching the cultural scene established by living local artists, various new art galleries, and art institutions,” said Markus Dochantschi of studioMDA.

Inaugurating the location is a special exhibition comprised of 70 works from the auction house’s 20th Century and Contemporary Art Evening and Day sales, New Now, Design, the Phillips x Artsy: Endless Summer Online-Only sale, and a selection of watches and jewelry.

Taking the spotlight at the start of the show is Jean-Michel Basquiat’s Portrait of A-One A.K.A. King, which will be up for public auction this November for the first time in over 30 years. Other highlights include works by Joan Miró, Pablo Picasso, José Parlá, Jean Dubuffet, and Otis Kwame Kye Quaicoe, as well as designs by Marcel Wanders and jewelry by Van Cleef & Arpels and Cartier.

“We’ve seen a seismic shift both in the art world and in the ecosystem of New York City,” said the CEO of Phillips, Edward Dolman. “Our new location in Southampton will allow for intimate in-person viewings of exceptional works of art, jewels, and watches, as well as the flexibility for our top collectors to experience artwork in person; that visceral experience is still such an integral element to appreciating art.”
