Group Exhibition

Stellenbosch

This year marks the tenth year since SMAC Gallery first opened its doors to the public in Stellenbosch in 2007. The gallery opened a second exhibition space in 2011 in Cape Town, and in 2016, opened a third gallery in Johannesburg.

In celebration of the past decade, SMAC presents X : PART I, the first of a series of exhibitions, showcasing highlights from the gallery’s exhibition history. In addition to new artworks, this series of exhibitions includes a combination of Modern and contemporary works by artists represented by SMAC gallery as well as artists who have previously exhibited work at the gallery.

SMAC manages a programme of exhibitions and projects that contribute toward understandings of discourse around African contemporary art, representing established and emerging artists practicing in South Africa, on the African continent and further abroad. The gallery also offers opportunities for critical re-evaluation of South African art history within a global context. In addition to this exhibitions programme, SMAC Gallery maintains a publishing initiative that has published over 26 titles to date.
