Andrew Lamprecht joined the Iziko South African National Gallery as the Curator of Historical Paintings and Sculpture in 2021. Prior to this he was a senior lecturer in History and Discourse of Art as well as Curatorship at UCT’s Michaelis School of Fine Art. He has curated over 40 exhibitions and written extensively on both historical and contemporary South African art. Aside from research and curation of Contemporary African art Andrew has a particular interest in re-contextualising historical collections and looking at the dialogue between western and African art as well as disruptive curation as well as preservation of knowledge through archives and libraries. Andrew is now responsible for pre-1950 artworks at the National Gallery as well as the world-renowned Michaelis Collection of Dutch and Flemish 17th century art at Iziko Old Town House.



Art School Africa, a non-profit organisation established in 2022, is dedicated to empowering individuals across the African continent to kickstart or advance their careers in the art industry. In partnership with the Harvard University Center for African Studies, the organisation conducts comprehensive research, spanning countries such as South Africa, Kenya, and Ghana, to gain profound insights into the distinctive challenges faced by art practitioners as they embark on their professional journeys. This research forms the foundation for the development of educational content designed to effectively support artists, curators, writers, gallerists, collectors, and more.


Embracing a hybrid model, Art School Africa offers a multitude of free online talks and panel discussions, as well as in-person workshops led by accomplished professionals. These workshops are recorded and subsequently uploaded to their growing online platform, which acts as an important archive of shared knowledge pertaining to professional artistic practice in Africa, and ensures accessibility to learners across borders.
