Set in a bank headquarters, Absa Art Gallery showcases temporary exhibitions and competition winners' works. It's a highly-respected platform for artists of all levels, mediums and backgrounds to share their work.
The artwork exhibited here includes both the works of pioneering art masters, and that of dynamic, inspiring and emerging visual artists. More than simply preserving the continent’s art legacy, ABSA is committed to shining the spotlight on the works of young African artists.
They believe that art is something everyone should have access to, and as such, have introduced virtual art events, live webinars and other digital art initiatives that allow the public to experience art in a new way.
ABSA’s corporate art collection is one of the largest in Africa and in the top 10 globally. Their corporate and regional buildings are filled with art from their collection, some of which were specially commissioned.
