A new public gallery exhibition from our permanent collection was installed in April 2021, as part of the biannual rotation of artworks on public display in the Constitutional Court. Works by Joseph Ndlovu, Anne Sassoon, Richard "Specs" Ndimande, Barbara Tyrrell, Neo Ntsoma, Charles Badenhorst, Usha Seejarim, Angeline Masuku, Nonhlanhla Manqele, Laurentia Dlamini, Robert Hodgins, Diana Hulton, Gideon Mendel and Norman Kaplan were newly added, amongst a wide range of other works on long term display. A number of works in this exhibition embody indigenous African tradition and culture, such as our Hlabisa basketry collection from KwaZulu-Natal, Barbara Tyrrell's sketches and the beadwork she donated to the CCAC, as well as contemporary depictions of African identity as is found in Richard "Specs" Ndimande's work. Joseph Ndlovu's Humanity conveys an African conception of justice rooted in the spirit of ubuntu.
The public gallery is open to the public seven days a week at no charge. Art & Justice tours are presented by the CCAC curatorial team on the last Saturday of every month. More info about the tours and bookings can be found here.
