Christie’s Visionary, The Paul G. Allen Collection

In a single evening, Microsoft cofounder Paul G. Allen’s ‘Visionary Collection’ achieved over $1.5 billion at auction, making it the largest and most exceptional sale in art auction history. Christie’s New York brought on Bluecadet to create a pre-auction interactive introduction to the gallery fitting for a truly visionary body of artwork spanning nearly 500 years of art history.

Visitors are invited to browse and learn more about the works of art featured in the auction digitally on a series of four touch screens, culminating in a large-scale projection in the center of the room to showcase some of the most visually stunning and prominent works in the collection.
