Iziko South African National Gallery

Begun as a small collection of 45 paintings in 1871, the Iziko South African National Gallery originally showcased work by early 20th-century British artists. Beginning in the 1980s, however, the increasing emergence of impressive and significant art from South African artists caused the museum to begin to shift its acquisition policies. This lead in 1990 to a complete redefinition of the institution's purpose, which now celebrates vital examples of artistic expression from all over the African continent as well as European art, with a particular focus on the Southern African regions. Featuring such genres as painting, photography, textiles, sculpture, and bead-work, the National Gallery represents the pinnacle of indigenous artistic achievement.

Whatiftheworld Gallery

Originally a tiny gallery in Cape Town’s City Centre, the WhatiftheWorld Gallery has since moved to bigger premises in what is becoming the rising creative neighborhood of Woodstock. Selected in 2007 by Contemporary Magazine in London as one of the Top 50 Emerging Galleries from Around the World, the gallery has become a hot platform of emerging contemporary South African artists. As a big supporter of local talent the gallery has launched the careers of several young artists and hosts regular critically-acclaimed solo and group exhibitions. It is one of the hottest galleries on the Cape Town arts scene and ideal for scouting out the local scene.
