A Life Less Ordinary: With Guest Curator Kelly Rowland

New York | 9 March

Singer/songwriter Kelly Rowland joins Sotheby’s as curator for our latest Contemporary Curated auction at Sothebys New York, creating an edit of six artworks that represent her collecting sensibilities.

“What I look for is when a piece has its own rhythm. I’m especially inspired by art when it comes to movement,” says Rowland, who has built an impressive personal collection with her discerning eye. “My first exposure to art was through figurative works that I could identify with, because as a kid, the world around me didn't look the way I did. Today, I find myself gravitating toward more abstract pieces that meld motion, energy and color – those feelings of being on stage.” 

The Contemporary Curated exhibit will be open in our York Avenue Galleries on 3-8 March ahead of the auction on 9 March.
