    Messages and Meaning: The MTN Art Collection
    R580.00 inc. VAT

    In September 1997 MTN, one of the leading cell phone companies in South Africa, made a modest purchase of artworks by South African artists. This marked the beginning of what was to become a major corporate collection of South African art, comprising some 1400 African and South African works. It has been energetically researched, traveled, exhibited, discussed, debated and admired. With this new book, the MTN Art Collection has come of age.

    Messages and Meaning aims to be an informative, diverse, and sumptuous read for years to come. The book was launched simultaneously to the first national touring exhibition of the MTN Art Collection in 2012.

    Owusu-Ankomah – Movement to the Micron
    R400.00 inc. VAT

    Owusu-Ankomah’s charged paintings on canvas depict an alternate world wherein monumental human figures – his core motif – are shown moving within an ocean of signs that surround, support and, in fact, define them. The way in which these figures coexist and interact with various symbolic sets has developed through distinct phases over time, reflecting Owusu-Ankomah’s own journey of spiritual discovery.
