The Durban Art Gallery is featuring a schools curriculum-based exhibition titled Enqolobaneni – “In the Silo”.

In partnership with the KwaZulu-Natal provincial Department of Education, the Durban Art Gallery showcases works that speak directly to the Visual Art Schools Curriculum content.

This semi-permanent exhibition is aimed at giving students an opportunity to view and reflect on the artworks whilst preparing for final examinations. Members of the public also get access to some of the Gallery’s prestigious collection, whilst pondering on some of the major events, ideas, and individuals that have shaped contemporary South African art history and beyond. Featured artists include Gerald Bhengu, Dumile Feni, Maggie Laubser, J.H. Pierneef, Irma Stern, Gerald Sekoto, Robert Hodgins, Themba Shibase, Dineo Bopape and Brett Murray.

The Durban Art Gallery is situated on the 2nd Floor City Hall, entrance in Anton Lembede (Smith) Street. For more information contact Witty Nyide or Musa Mncwabe on 031 311 2274/5.
