About Art @ Africa

How it all started.

Art@Africa’s world class venue and gallery is situated in the centre of the bustling V&A Waterfront, approximately 120 meters from the Zeitz MOCAA. The aim of the Art@ franchise is to create meaningful art experiences, curated by internationally acclaimed curators to trigger powerful emotions. In displaying entirely South African artists, the gallery hopes to provide a platform on which the extraordinary South African talent can be recognised on an international level. Art@Africa gallery uses its unique setting to celebrate the diversity of South African art which is also showcased on our online art gallery. The Gallery invests time and enthusiasm into young artists displaying them amongst the crème de la crème to create an atmosphere of both established and new talent.

Art to me is very broad, but simplistically I can explain art as a creation of an expression by someone, which elicits emotion.
