Christie’s In NY To Display Gherdai Hassell Art

August 7, 2021

Bermudian artist Gherdai Hassell will be auctioning her artwork at Christie’s Auction House at Christie’s New York. The work will be on display at the Rockerfella Center in Manhattan throughout the month of August.

The report on the Christie’s website said, “Christie’s, in partnership with visionary curator Destinee Ross-Sutton, is proud to announce the second edition of Say It Loud: Visionaries of Self from August 5-19. The exhibition will also be accompanied by a robust schedule of educational programming including a compensated course on business skills for artists hosted by Christie’s Education. In continuing the Say it Loud exhibition series, Christie’s aims to provide a necessary and ongoing global platform for the amplification and celebration of individual Black artists’ distinct perspectives, narratives and lenses.

“This year, Say It Loud: Visionaries of Self will feature 32 works to be presented in an online auction format, complemented by an exhibition at Christie’s New York galleries, with 100% of proceeds going directly to the artists and their representatives. A portion of remitted proceeds will go toward funding the Black Artist Collective, a foundation founded by co-curator Destinee Ross-Sutton to help promote and support in particular young and emerging African and LGTBQ+ artists of color.

“This next iteration showcases an exceptional international mix of returning talent — Nelson Makamo, Khari Turner, Joshua Michael Adokuru, Isshaq Ismail, and The Love Child — alongside a new selection of 17 emerging and established mid-career artists such as Gherdai Hassell, Sarah Dahir, Hebru Brantley and acclaimed artist Zanele Muholi. Consisting of predominantly figural works, this tightly-curated grouping unites a rich diversity of individual voices, creative practices, and a myriad of cultural and social experiences through stimulating renderings of the human form.”
