9 June-25 Oct 2009. On display are paintings, sculptures and works on paper, which testify to the great diversity of style and technique in South African art between the 1930s and 1950s. The works range from landscape painting to abstract art and engage with the burgeoning trends in Europe at the time.

Featured artists include Maggie Laubser, Irma Stern, Wolf Kibel, Jacob Pierneef, Gerard Sekoto and Lippy Lipshitz, who rejuvenated the local art scene by bringing a spirit of challenge and cosmopolitanism to it.

This exhibition aims to re-evaluate the epoch between 1930 and 1950, when many artists brought a different kind of subjective gaze to South African art.
