Contemporary African Art Collection by Jean Pigozzi
The Contemporary African Art Collection (CAAC) is a private collection created in 1989 by Italian business man, Jean Pigozzi. It includes several thousand artworks featuring paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, installations and videos from contemporary artists living in sub-Saharan African countries. Curated up to 2008 by André Magnin, now an independant curator and art dealer, the CAAC is regularly acquiring new pieces, adding new artists and lending works to major art institutions and museums around the world.
The collection is based in Geneva, and does not have a permanent exhibition venue.
In 2008, Jean Pigozzi also started collecting contemporary Japanese art, the collection is presented on japigozzicollection.com .
