South Africa’s National Art Collection

Admire South Africa’s unseen national art collection, stored and conserved behind-the-scenes of the Iziko National Gallery, guided by senior curator of historical collections, Hayden Proud.

Art historian and University of Cape Town lecturer, Anna Tietze engage us in a discussion on the evolution of South African art. We examine what should be in South Africa’s national art collection? How is art evolving with the times of post-colonisation, apartheid and the Zeitz MOCAA? What should be on public display and where? Tietze has recently published A History of the Iziko South African National GalleryReflections on Art and National Identity.

There is the option to join us for lunch afterward at a private Cape Regency home, five minutes walk from the gallery, hosted by Patrick and Siobhan Esnouf. Our chef is Robert Mulders, with wine from Stellenbosch estate, De Meye.
