In the 13th episode of Collect Wisely we are speaking with Pamela Joyner. Based in San Francisco, Pamela and her husband Fred Giuffrida’s collection consists of over 400 works, with a primary focus on abstract works by artists of the African diaspora from the 1940’s onward.
The collection is widely recognised as one of the most significant collections of modern and contemporary art by African American artists. In September 2017, Pamela and Fred published a scholarly catalogue of the collection titled, Four Generations: The Joyner Giuffrida Collection of Abstract Art. Following the publication, select works from the exhibition have been included in an extensive exhibition, which opened at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, in New Orleans and has toured to several US museums.
