Contemporary African Art Collection by Jean Pigozzi


The Contemporary African Art Collection (CAAC) is a private collection created by Italian business man, Jean Pigozzi, over the last 20 years. 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.
