The Art of Democracy: 20 Years of Collecting

This exhibition of selected art works acquired since 1994 celebrates the diversity of collecting for the Gallery's permanent collection. Smaller works can be overlooked, but are nonetheless equally compelling. Peter Machen's triptych, Forgotten Herstories of KwaZulu-Natal, is an example of how the creative process invites us to consider alternatives to our preconceptions of the role of women in our history. In these digital images, fiction is presented as fact.
