The Scheryn Art Collection is a private art collection situated in Cape Town, South Africa. The collection was started in 2015 and has a focus on contemporary art from African and its diaspora. Scheryn wants to build a representative collection which makes the most of alternative channels for investigating, contextualising, and exhibiting the collection while collaborating with others in the art community.
Scheryn aims to grow, share, and conserve knowledge of contemporary African art by making sustainable and purposeful contributions to the African art community. It seeks to do this by supporting artists, curators, galleries, and museums, collaborating with public and private institutions locally and abroad, loaning artworks from the collection, and exhibiting the collection.
