The Vibrant City

12 September 2016 - 28 April 2017
The Vibrant City

See the city through the eyes of artists; this exhibition will contain artworks from the Art Museum’s permanent collection that depict Nelson Mandela Bay. 

The exhibition explores how artists, both past and present, have depicted Nelson Mandela Bay. Works on show include examples from the Art Museum’s historical collection showing the development of the harbour from a wooden block house in 1799 to a busy industrial hub. More recent works by local artists Robert Brooks, Alexander Podlashuc and George Pemba show the modern city while contemporary photographic artworks by Rob Duker and Marc Shoul focus on the lives of people living in Nelson Mandela Bay
