Dialogues: conversations between ‘old’ and ‘new’

The Iziko Art Collections Department holds in trust a collection of historical, modern and contemporary works of art that is both South African and international in origin. This diverse collection consists of paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, sculptures, conceptual art, new-media works and the material culture of Southern Africa.

Dialogues: Conversations between ‘old’ and ‘new’ profiles a small selection from these collections, showcasing a variety of works from different periods that demonstrate a commonality in terms of either formal concerns or in theme and content. The pairings, juxtapositions and groupings in this exhibition attempt to reveal a ‘dialogue’ between old and new; past and present.
