The Zeitz Collection — Did You Know?

Did you know Stack’s Bowers Galleries is featuring
selections from the Jochen Zeitz collection in our official auction of the ANA
World’s Fair of Money?  Indian Peace
medals from the Zeitz collection will cross the block as part of Session 1,
which begins on Tuesday, August 13 at 10:00 AM CDT.  Most of the Indian Peace Medals offered here
form part of the Zeitz ‘Americana’ Collection and are being sold to help
support the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA), a ground
breaking and internationally celebrated platform for preserving and exhibiting
cutting edge contemporary art from Africa and its diaspora.

Zeitz MOCAA, described by the New York Times as "a
provocative Museum placing African Art on the Global Stage” and “a shining
beacon for African art” by the Financial Times, is housed in the historic Grain
Silo in Capetown, innovatively re-designed by acclaimed architect Thomas
Heatherwick. Considered one of the most extensive and representative
collections of contemporary art from Africa, the Zeitz Contemporary African Art
Collection is exhibited within the museum’s custom-designed space housing 90
individual galleries. Zeitz MOCAA is deeply committed to its ‘access for all’
and educational initiatives, promoting intercultural understanding and ensuring
African citizens and all children are given free access to the museum. Opened
in September 2017 as the world’s largest museum of 21st-century art from the
continent and its diaspora, Zeitz MOCAA welcomed 350,000 visitors in its first year,
received 15 awards and been hailed as “Africa’s answer to Tate Modern.”
