Seasoned art collectors and connoisseurs returned to the Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary art fair for their second installation, and Hilton & Hyland was proud to partner with Christie’s International Real Estate as the event’s lead sponsor once again.
Presented by the Art Miami Group and hosted by the City of West Palm Beach, the fair kicked off the area’s vibrant winter season from January 11-15. Art on display at the fair showcased an array of Modern and Contemporary works from the likes of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons, and more; as well as Post-War works from over 50 top international galleries and luxury properties from the world’s leading real estate network.
This latest collaboration with Art Miami represents yet another opportunity to interface directly with top-tier clientele worldwide. With contemporary art soaring in popularity, the venue showcased premier listings from Hilton & Hyland.
“The contemporary art market is red hot with keen interest from around the world,” says Rick Moeser, Executive Director of Christie’s Palm Beach-based corporate office. “The passion for this genre infused so much energy into this year’s fair. It is also important to make a strong statement about our newly opened Beach office with Premier Estate Properties and in doing so, also demonstrate our network’s luxury real estate expertise with the presence of two other important affiliates – Hilton & Hyland and EWM.”
Together with Christie’s International Real Estate, Hilton & Hyland displayed video montages, while real estate experts stood on hand to advise on property acquisitions. This level of client care and outreach distinguishes being a part of the Christie’s network.
“This is just another great service that we offer to our clients,” said Rick Hilton, Chairman of Hilton & Hyland. “We get to put our homes in front of some of the most esteemed collectors in the world, and it’s a unique opportunity to attract numerous qualified buyers.”
“As the founding affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, we really relish the opportunity to attend this fair,” added Jeff Hyland, President of Hilton & Hyland. “In recent years the lines between art and luxury real estate have begun to overlap like never before and the two industries are very connected.”
Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary gave collectors the opportunity to acquire works from both the primary and secondary markets. Works by nearly 1,000 artists from Japan, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Canada, The Netherlands, Portugal, and Venezuela were on display at the fair, as well as cutting edge works from the U.S.
