The Glenn Schaeffer Collection

Tuesday 31st October 2017

6.30pm - 3 Abbey Street, Newton, Auckland

Art+Object is delighted to announce that it will offer the collection of the American-born hotelier, published author, art collector and philanthropist, Glenn Schaeffer in October 2017. Ranked by Vanity Fair as one of the world’s 50 premier private collections in 2007, the Glenn Schaeffer Collection is unquestionably one of the most sophisticated and refined private collections of art in this country, unique by virtue of the manner in which it contextualizes New Zealand’s leading painters and sculptors alongside significant works by major international figures such as Winston Roeth, Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Fred Sandback, Pipilotti Rist, Donald Judd and many more. A catalogue will be published and a public programme announced to mark the occasion.

Highlights from The Glenn Schaeffer Collection were exhibited at A+O during The Estate of Michael Illingworth auction viewing. Click the 'Exhibition Media' link below to view installation photos.
