Alex Rotter, the former co-head of Sotheby’s contemporary art department, will be joining Christie’s as its chairman of postwar and contemporary art. Rotter left Sotheby’s in February, after sixteen years with the auction house. He is expected to start at Christie’s in early 2017. Rotter’s departure from Sotheby’s was part of a mass exodus that included a number of high-profile employees, including Cheyenne Westphal, who helmed the auction house’s contemporary art department alongside Rotter.
