The Johannesburg Art Gallery
The Johannesburg Art Gallery, founded in 1910, is the major art museum in South Africa. It has extensive collections of traditional and contemporary South African art and international art from the 16th century to the present. It has been at the forefront of the reassessment of the history of South African art through the presentation of groundbreaking exhibitions. The Gallery’s acquisitions policy has shifted in the last decade to the extent that the collection now reflects the artistic heritage of the majority of South Africans. The temporary and permanent exhibitions programs provide access to the visual cultural heritage of all South Africans.
Education is an integral component of the Johannesburg Art Gallery’s (JAG) activities and its institutional vision. The JAG team perceives the gallery as a learning environment in which curiosity, discovery and contemplation are encouraged. The team aims to provide all visitors, regardless of age, background or ability, with inspiring and empowering experiences through tours, exhibitions and programs, providing new perspectives and ways of viewing the world.
