AboutFor the Irma Stern Museum's 50th anniversary, the museum is welcoming its diverse local audiences to enjoy all that the property already has to offer, but there is also a special programme of events throughout the year. The official celebrations launch to the general public and students in late February 2022.
Some of the highlights include a high-profile artist-in-residency programme. The first exhibition, by internationally recognised contemporary artist Athi-Patra Ruga, runs from 19 March to 18 June 2022. This is followed by the stellar Georgina Gratrix in studio as artist-in-residence from July to September 2022. Her show will open in October. Celebrated composer and sound artist Neo Muyanga will be artist-in-residence from October onwards.
Parallel to this, the museum will continue to run its ongoing education programme, which is partly funded by the National Art Council. The museum will also host LGBTIQA+ Safe Space workshops weekly throughout most of the year.
