Dubbed ‘The Gallery of the People’, The Melrose Gallery is a leading Pan African Contemporary space located in Melrose Arch in Johannesburg and One&Only Cape Town.
Passionate about African culture and traditions, the gallery has become a home in which artists, collectors and the public gather as a community to present and celebrate their stories, lives and creative practices in contemporary ways.
Our stable boasts iconic names of the likes of Dr. Esther Mahlangu, Mam Noria Mabasa, Dr. Willie Bester and Professor Pitika Ntuli amongst others. These globally celebrated stalwarts provide a stable foundation for an exciting group of young guards who are swiftly rising from the African Continent.
The Melrose Gallery hosts various solo and group exhibitions each year with well attended openings that are a highlight of the South African arts calendar. We participate in respected Art Fairs, support our artists in terms of biennales and conceptualise and implement important non-commercial exhibitions with museums and national galleries.
