Expressions d’Afrique – Inside Jean Pigozzi’s Collection


Galerie Gmurzynska
Paradepl, 8001 Zurich


giovedì 24 ottobre 2019 – lunedì 23 dicembre 2019

Only three months after the announcement by the MoMA The Museum of Modern Art of having received 45 works of African contemporary art from the collector Jean Pigozzi – a major donation described as “a transformative gift” by the museum, Galerie Gmurzynska is proud to present “Expressions d’Afrique – Inside Jean Pigozzi’s Collection.”

Artist, collector and entrepreneur Jean Pigozzi assembled one of the most important and largest collections of African contemporary art in the world, named the Contemporary African Art Collection (CAAC).

“Expressions d’Afrique,” curated by former curator of the Grand Palais Dr. Jérôme Neutres, presents for the first time in Switzerland a selection of works from this well-known collection, which spans a wide spectrum of artistic creation from the African continent and contains a diversity of forms of expression.
