Art Bank of South Africa

Event information

Launched in 2017, this is a national programme of the Department of Arts and Culture, as part of the Mzansi Golden Economy (MGE) strategy implementation. It is hosted by the National Museum Bloemfontein, an agency of the Department of Arts and Culture.

The Art Bank is tasked with purchasing artworks from local artists, particularly that of emerging artists, in order to lease and sell the artworks to South African government departments, private companies and private individuals.

Their mission is the curation of a definitive collection of contemporary South African visual art, and the promotion of financial sustainability for the artists and Art Bank of South Africa through the leasing of art.

They aim to nurture emerging artists by expanding the market for their work and providing skills development opportunities. The Art Bank also seeks to foster an appreciation for contemporary art by making it accessible to the broader public in their workplaces and shared spaces.
