THEFOURTH is a contemporary art gallery and design showroom. Housed on the fourth floor of the old Exchange Building in the historic area of St. George’s Mall, the platform is on the pulse of Cape Town’s creative community. The mixed-use space is both commercial and informative in nature and comprises a gallery as well as a concept store and a private bar. The hybrid nature of THEFOURTH promotes interdisciplinary connection and collaboration in order to foster a community of creative professionals. Our aim is to break down traditional gallery structures and offer new contexts in which to exhibit art and design.


THEFOURTH gallery is a hybrid space bridging the gap between art and design. It exhibits emerging and mid-career local contemporary artists alongside local and international designers and makers, democratizing art to a wider audience. By showing works in an unconventional mixed-use space, THEFOURTH inherently defies the white cube gallery model and allows for new context in art production and viewing. The repurposed space in the heritage building provides room for innovation and reinvention away from the confines of tradition, creating an opportunity to engage with art on different terms.
