Apartheid Museum

Resilience and Reflection: Celebrating 30 Years of Democracy

To mark 30 years of South Africa’s democracy, the Apartheid Museum is partnering with the Ifa Lethu Foundation to showcase an exhibition of selected works from its collection.

The collection of artworks repatriated from 16 countries represents a record of life in the townships in the dark days of apartheid. That black artists created this art is extraordinary, and that it has been preserved and returned to South Africa, is something of a miracle.

In this exhibition, contemporary artists have also been invited to show work that assesses the state of our society 30 years after the end of apartheid. Their work speaks to the work of their precursors, showing the connections between these generations and also the paths not taken.
