Home and Away: A Return To The South

For the last five years the Ifa Lethu Foundation has been instrumental in repatriating South African art that was produced during the apartheid years but which found its way overseas due to the fact that there was no market for the work of black South African artists in the country at the time.

The exhibition 'Home and Away: A Return To The South' explores this previously lost artistic heritage alongside the Art Against Apartheid collection.The show examines the similarities and differences between works produced by South African artists experiencing the oppression of apartheid and those from beyond our shores who created works in support of the struggle. Although produced from different perspectives, the two collections are united in their focus on human rights.
