Set on the cusp of colourful Bo-Kaap, Brundyn Gallery is an industrial space offering a platform to African contemporary art. On the outskirts of Cape Town’s bustling city centre, its simple design does what every art gallery should – complements and enhances the works, as opposed to distracting from it.
Founded in 2006, the gallery’s focus is on African art and art from the diaspora. In addition to international works, it places emphasis on artists closer to home: South Africans. Moreover, Brundyn also has a focus on video artworks. With a dedicated audio visual exhibition space, the realm of the digital can be tacitly evoked, transporting viewers into a new dimension and experience of art.
It’s a gallery that, in its quiet and still halls, makes the viewer experience art in a true and varied form. Whether you like the art or not, the artists exhibiting are in their own way contributing to what contemporary art in South Africa is and is becoming, and for that we support it.
