The Sanlam Art Lounge presents Centennial, an exhibition showcasing a century of South African art from the Sanlam Art Collection (1918 – 2018).
From Botha’s Butterfly Box and Kentridge’s Stadium to van der Merwe’s Gaste and Mudariki’s The Model, art is one of the most truthful documentations of the nation’s history. This exhibition commemorates Sanlam’s centenary, and is one-of-a-kind in its objective to showcase SA history.
Curator, Stefan Hundt takes visitors on a journey through the last 100 years with free guided tours (available by appointment). A journey that brings one face-to-face with chapters of colonial hegemony, political repression, a triumphant democracy and the economically unbalanced society that followed.
