Why bet on red or black when you can head to Sabrina Ho’s Poly Auction Macau and put your money on a Xu Bing?
he latest opening in Macau gives the city a new way to back a winner. Sabrina Ho, as director and CEO, launched Poly Auction Macau last month, a branch of the Chinese state-owned Poly Group that includes Poly Auction Hong Kong. Eye-catching lots on the block at its inaugural auction on January 10 included masterpieces by the late artists Chu TehChun, Wu Guanzhong and Lin Fengmian alongside pieces by such contemporary artists as Takashi Murakami and Zhang Enli. To mark the occasion, Sabrina selected works from 60 post-1975 artists from Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan to feature in 60 guest rooms she personally designed at the Regency Hotel Macau. With a series of events planned and co-organised by Poly Auction Macau and its partner, Chiu Yeng Culture, which was founded by Sabrina, the venture is set to invigorate the city’s cultural diversity.
