This October, Sotheby’s is honored to present “Art of Tomorrow: Works Sold to Benefit the Chu Foundation”, an eclectic collection from prominent Hong Kong-based art collectors and patrons Natalie Chan Chu and Lawrence Chu. A total of 34 lots will be offered across Contemporary Art Evening and Day Sales, featuring a compelling group of paintings, sculptures and installation art by some of the most sought-after Asian and Western contemporary artists including Martin Wong, Firenze Lai, Zhang Enli and Jonas Wood.
A portion of the sale proceeds will benefit the Chu Foundation, an independent not-for-profit entity founded by the Chu’s with a mission to empower human potential through art and education. Funds will be used to support the Foundation’s latest project, the Chu Residency at Tateyama, Toyama Prefecture in Japan, which is scheduled to launch in 2021. The Residency will invite artists from around the world to the tranquil town of Tateyama to focus and develop their visions and crafts, and will further expand to include a mentorship program and an interactive and communicative digital space. Fostering artistic and cultural exchange, artistic education and a deep understanding of each artists’ relationship with their work, the Residency aims to be a holistic and diverse community driving the future of international artistic creation.
With a combination of works by Asian and Western blue-chip artists as well as emerging local talents, the Chu Collection represents a distinct perspective from Hong Kong where the Chu family is rooted. Its diversity in expression reflects Natalie and Lawrence’s belief that art can spark innovation and enrich lives.
