EXPLORE THE WORK
Prepare to embark on a journey from an idyllic oceanside to a gritty city – and imaginary places in between. From a stroll down Cape Town’s Darling Street to the historically fraught District Six, to the very edge of the world at Cape Point, some of the artistic depictions of place in this gallery transport us across South Africa, the cradle of humanity.
Located on the southernmost tip of the African continent, South Africa hosts numerous ecosystems, holds mineral wealth, and has spectacular flora and fauna. Physical features range from bushveld, grasslands, forests, deserts and majestic mountain peaks to wide well-preserved beaches and coastal wetlands. The artists in this exhibition have generously made these unreachable vistas available to us.
