Forty Years of Friendship: The Friends of the SA National Gallery:  1968–2008

The Friends of the South African National Gallery (FONG) mark their 40th anniversary with this celebratory exhibition of works of art that they have presented to the Gallery’s collections over the past four decades. While the exhibition emphasises exciting, newly-acquired works of contemporary South African art that are being shown for the very first time, it also reveals the quietly supportive role played by the FONG in building a very broad and representative collection for the nation over an extensive period. Without this loyal and proactive support, our collecting activities would have been greatly impoverished.
