A number of works from leading contemporary artists from Africa and its diaspora will be up for auction at the Zeitz Museum
of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA). Held in partnership with Strauss & Co, the live auction will take place at the museum on Saturday December 1.

The auction will feature 26 lots, from 21 artists, including William Kentridge, Nicholas Hlobo and Yinka Shonibare.

“We are incredibly thankful to the artists and galleries that have donated these amazing works to us and made this auction possible,” said Brooke Minto, director of institutional advancement at Zeitz MOCAA.

“With critical support from artists, collectors, and patrons alike, we can shape the museum’s future programming and ensure that Zeitz MOCAA has a deep and sustained impact on our community at large.”

Funds raised from the benefit auction allow the museum to continue its community outreach efforts through the Centre for Art Education, underscoring its commitment to Access for All which remains central to the mission of Zeitz MOCAA.

The auction will be held in the museum’s iconic Heatherwick grain silos, guided by Strauss & Co.Interested parties can register for telephone bidding, view the catalogue or find out more information by visiting www.straussart.co.za
