Phillips’s evening sale of 20th-century and contemporary art was held in the afternoon in London on Thursday (7 March), seemingly to help ease the jam-packed schedule of auctions taking place in the British capital this week. As a whole, the sale brought in £10.9m before accounting for fees, just below the low end of the auction house’s estimates. The same sale last year fetched nearly double, £20.3m (with fees).

Phillips expected this year’s auction to bring in between £11.7m and £16.4m after three lots were pulled, two before the beginning of the sale and a work by German artist Martin Kippenberger after the auction began. The two paintings withdrawn before the sale were La petite pêcheuse (1879) by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, which had been estimated to sell for between £900,000 and £1.2m, and an untitled Wade Guyton with an £800,000 to £1m estimate.

As the country’s premier arts and culture institution, the Cultural Center of the Philippines advocates for inclusive arts education and participation by providing intensified approaches to upskilling Filipino artists to make them sustainable and competitive in today’s contemporary setting.

This rationale sets in motion a series of workshops, dubbed the Upskilling in Performing Arts Program, aimed at equipping artists with additional skills in art and wellness, festival management, and performance curatorship for modern museums. First launched in 2022, the program was made possible through the congressional initiative of Pangasinan Fourth District Rep. Christopher de Venecia.

The late Pacita Abad (b. Philippines, 1946–2004) is a Filipina artist known for her psychedelic works that burst with color and commentary on culture, politics, and identity. Throughout her 30-year career, Abad built an oeuvre of over 5,000 artworks.

Now with ongoing exhibitions at the Venice Biennale and MoMA PS1, she is finally receiving the recognition she deserves.

Since her reintroduction to the art world in her exhibition “A Million Things to Say” at the Museum of Contemporary Art and Design in 2018 (co-curated by Pio Abad and Joselina Cruz), Abad’s estate has steadily organized exhibitions with different institutions across the world—from the “Life in the Margins” on Spike Island, Bristol, England in 2020 to “I Thought the Streets Were Paved with Gold” at the Jameel Arts Centre, Dubai in 2022.
