Artsy for Auctions

Artsy offers a centralized online platform to promote your auction, expand your client base, maximize bids, and support auction operations with our suite of cloud-based and mobile tools.

Experience

Trusted platform for both commercial and benefit auctions

To date, Artsy benefit auctions have helped to raise more than $13 million for museums, AIDS research, and other charitable causes. In October 2015, Artsy hosted its first online-only auction with Sotheby’s entitled “Input/Output,” with a technology theme and three collector-activation events in the Silicon Valley.

Audience

Reach a global audience of 10+ million unique collectors and art lovers.

Since launching in October 2012 Artsy has had over 18+ million visits from 190+ countries across web and mobile, driven by organic search traffic as well as targeted partnerships with art fairs, galleries, and other sources of collector traffic.

Our first commercial auction with LA Modern Auctions achieved 100% sell through, with 85% of winning bidders coming from Artsy’s collector base.

Access

Maximize bids on our user-friendly bidding platform.

Artsy delivers a beautifully designed online bidding experience—Collectors can place bids from web, tablet, and mobile, while easily checking on the status of their bids.

Artsy's technology created a unique user experience which was essential to generating our most successful auction in years.
