In this way, the space becomes a platform for education and learning; conversations about creativity and innovation, contributing to the discourse on the art of Africa and reflecting upon historical and political events as interpreted by artists.
Aside from the inaugural exhibition titled 101 Collecting Conversations: Signature Works of a Century, the Javett-UP houses, three permanent collections. They are the AngloGold Ashanti Barbier-Mueller Gold of Africa collection, the Javett Foundation’s collection of 20th century South African art, which contains a number of significant works and the Mapungubwe Gold, an archaeological collection which is historically and culturally important for South Africa, the southern African region and the world.
Visitors to the Javett-UP are encouraged to not only admire the beauty of the artworks, but to engage with the issues they depict. Such conversations are facilitated when visitors receive the context behind these works.
The Javett-UP is therefore offering free tours every Friday from 12.30 to 13.30pm for UP staff and students, on presentation of a valid staff or student card.
