The Melrose Gallery



Exhibiting artists: Esther Mahlangu The Melrose Gallery is a leading Pan African Contemporary space located in Johannesburg and Cape Town. The gallery represents established and emerging artists whose voices speak to issues of significance to the Continent of Africa on a global basis. We are passionate about ensuring that the elders who have made a valuable contribution to African Contemporary Art are recognized and that their important voices continue to be heard. Our stable includes iconic names of the likes of Dr. Esther Mahlangu, Professor Pitika Ntuli, Mam Noria Mabasa, Dr. Willie Bester, Paul Weinberg, Sifiso Ka-Mkame and Arlene Amaler-Raviv. These stalwarts provide a stable foundation to an exciting selection of mid-career and emerging artists from the African Continent and Diaspora. These include the likes of Hussein Salim, Christiaan Diedericks, Papytsho Mafolo, Simon Zitha, Philiswa Lila, Mederic Turay, Gerald Chukwuma, Senzo Shabangu, Clint Strydom, Aza Mansongi, Denis Mubiru and others. We run a curated programme of exhibitions, participate in respected art fairs, support many of our artists in their participation at Biennales and conceptualize and implement significant non-commercial exhibitions in association with leading museums.
