December 2017

The Scheryn Collection Arena will be a hub of activity this December as Zeitz MoCAA hosts a series of talks.

The Scheryn Collection Arena, situated to the right of the main atrium on the ground floor of Zeitz MoCAA, will be hosting a series of talks and engagements from 9 December to 20 December 2018 as part of Zeitz MoCAA’s bumper December programming. Each talk is presented by the MoCAA Assistant Curators who have bought together a wide variety of contributors who will consider a diverse range of topics.

The Scheryn Collection Arena is home to the Centre for Performative Practise, a dedicated exhibition space devoted to performance art. This dedicated area was made possible by the dedicated support of Herman Steyn and Dabing Chen, founders of the Scheryn Art Collection. Scheryn was the first private institution to publically support Zeitz MOCAA and both Herman and Dabing felt it was important undertaking as the Scheryn Collection was founded on the desire to make purposeful, meaningful and sustainable contributions to the African Art Market.
