Trac­ing 100,000 years of his­tory, this re­mark­able ex­hi­bi­tion ex­plores the be­gin­nings of artis­tic thought and early sculp­ture and dis­plays fas­ci­nat­ing ex­am­ples of colo­nial art from the 17th cen­tury on­wards. Dis­cover how artists re­sponded to seg­re­ga­tion and apartheid in the 20th cen­tury, and in­ves­ti­gate how the post-apartheid era has im­pacted the na­tion’s cre­ative com­mu­nity.
