This autumn, K11 MUSEA once again collaborates with renowned auction house Sotheby’s to present an exclusive preview of never-before-seen works and luxury goods at the pioneering cultural-retail destination from 18 to 21 September.
Headlining Sotheby’s Hong Kong 2021 Autumn Auctions Preview is the unprecedented showcase of film memorabilia from the archives of internationally acclaimed director Wong Kar Wai, including the iconic “Heartbreak Tango - Yellow Jacket” worn by leading actor Leslie Cheung in the film Happy Together (1997).
Winning Wong Best Director at the Cannes Film Festival in 1997, Happy Together marked the first time a Chinese director won this prestigious accolade—its signature jacket preserved in excellent condition in the Jet Tone Archive since the film’s release 25 years ago. Also on preview will be the dedicated sale of collectibles such as unreleased film footage, props, costumes, posters, and photographs from the “Happy Together | WKW x Jet Tone Films 30th Anniversary” collection, with each item accompanied by a certificate signed by the director himself.
Apart from the first-ever presentation of Wong Kar Wai’s legendary collection, the four-day preview will feature over 40 pieces of modern and contemporary art by Asian and Western masters, as well as selected pieces of luxury jewellery, sneakers and handbags on preview.
See the brilliance of modern and contemporary artists such as Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Yoshitomo Nara, and Zao Wou Ki, or immerse in the abstract masterpieces pioneered by Georges Mathieu and Kazuo Shiraga. Explore Harry Winston’s glimmering 117.51-carat diamond wonder, among a plethora of luxury items. Catch Sotheby’s 2021 Autumn Auction preview at K11 MUSEA now!
