Circle Art Auction 2017 is our fourth Modern and Contemporary East African art auction.  Circle Art Auction 2017 took place on Monday 27 February 2017 at the InterContinental Nairobi.

This year’s sale has taken over a year to curate and collect. There were 54 modern and contemporary artworks from both the secondary and primary market from seven countries; Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Sudan, Ethiopia, Seychelles and Zimbabwe. The selection included some rare art from as early as 1958 from artists we have not presented before to current work from our most promising contemporary artists.

The evening’s sales totalled over Ksh 19 million (USD 186,000) with 85% of lots sold (including sales post-auction).
