PAC Gallery Updates

Last month I expressed concern over the choice to open the new PAC Gallery with an exhibition of contemporary Indian Art. My question was based on recent art market reports. Though this week, the PAC Gallery is reporting an earlier edition of one of these paintings sold at Christie’s.

According to the PAC Gallery:

“We are pleased to announce that edition No. 8/9 of Vivek Vilasini's Last Supper Gaza just sold at Christie's recent South Asian Modern & Contemporary Art Sale in London. The priced realized at the auction was $34,744 including the buyers premium. We have edition No. 9/9 and the only copy available in the United States at PAC Gallery, our new location in East Walnut Hills.”

Click Christie's to view the sale.

PAC Gallery has decided to extend this exhibition through the end of July if you would like to see this and the other paintings that make up the show.
