With an increasing focus on African Art around the world, Eclectica Contemporary aims to present a carefully selected and focused collection of art from the continent that interrogates the issues facing us in a globalized world. The art at Eclectica often shows practices and materials familiar from art history but which push these boundaries and explore uncharted territories of representation, technique and theory.
Based in Cape Town, South Africa, Eclectica Contemporary sees itself as an African gallery with an international vision. We celebrate the diversity and depth of art making on our continent while aiming to contextualize this for a growing global market.
Our program of exhibitions shows a mix of solo shows by gallery artists alongside curated group shows. In addition, the Eclectica Contemporary exhibition space has facilities for experimental, new media and project-based works.
As an all female team, August represents a highlight in Eclectica Contemporary’s calendar. Join us as we explore and celebrate the narratives of women from all walks of life on the African continent in our annual, all female, group exhibition titled Freedom = No Fear.
This Women’s month we shift our attention to a deep understanding of how society unconsciously leads us to dissect our perceptions of freedom. We feature the text of Egyptian curator and art economist Sahar Behairy, as part of our ongoing curatorial collective with North African artists.
Exhibiting artists include Souad Mardam Bey, Souad Abdelrasoul, Grace Mokalada, Fatima Tayob, Nina Holmes, Sue Greeff, Alet Swartz, Helena Hugo, Yasmine Yacoubi, Raja Oshi, Melissa Barker and Alexia Vogel.
