Singita has announced the opening of an art gallery space at Singita Kruger National Park in July 2022. This follows the group’s first art gallery space at Singita Sabi Sand earlier this year.
The company says the collection of pieces on display demonstrates contemporary African artwork and collectables, highlighting the creativity of the continent, and includes works by renowned artists as well as rising talent.
“We want to celebrate Africa’s rich cultural heritage; its unique places and people; and the beautiful stories and experiences that have shaped who they are,” said Phumzile Mgiba, boutique manager for Singita.
Investment pieces by internationally collected and award-winning African artists, from sculpture to photography and installations, will be exhibited in the spaces.
“By creating a space dedicated to contemporary art from Africa, Singita is showcasing the creativity that is so prolific here. The works displayed at the new space in Singita Sabi Sand embody this, and we will continue to build on its remarkable momentum across all our regions,” said Lindy Rousseau, chief strategist at Singita.
To further promote the appreciation of African art on the world stage, Singita will encourage guests to engage closely with the works — to learn about their context as well as the artists. Activations such as artist residencies and auctions will also be introduced in time.
Further updates on the artists, auctions and the curators will be available on the Singita website.
