Art sale

Bina Genovese, Caro Wiese and Catherine Schmolke.

Strauss & Co hosted their first contemporary art sale on Saturday February 17 at the former warehouse overlooking Duncan Docks. Once a cold-storage facility, the warehouse now part of a complex being transformed by the V&A Waterfront into a multi-billion-rand cruise liner terminal and is a five-minute walk from the Silo District and Zeitz Museum. The sale, which focuses on contemporary art by South African, African and diaspora artists, coincided with the Cape Town Art Fair, which took place from Friday February 16 to Sunday February 18 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.
