The Berman Contemporary aims to establish a synergistic network between South African artists and their global contemporaries. The gallery is rooted in the growing understanding of the cultural richness and diversity of South African contemporary art, and their collection centres on a vibrant group of artists living in South Africa.
Through studio visits, Berman Contemporary establishes connections to artists from all walks of life whose unique processes celebrate their historical and cultural heritage, and give a voice to their complex societal realities.
Gallery owner Candice Berman has formed the Artists Solidarity Assistance Project (ASAP), a venture dedicated to local visual artists. The gallery is collaborating with 24 fine artists and has put together a selection of 24 images. Each archival inkjet image is an edition of 50, printed onto Hahnemuhle German etching paper.
