Berman Contemporary is rooted in the growing understanding of the cultural richness and diversity of South African contemporary art. The gallery’s collection centres on a vibrant group of artists living and working in South Africa.
Through studio visits, the gallery establishes connections to artists from all walks of life whose unique artistic processes celebrate their historical and cultural heritage and give a voice to their complex societal realities, evoking an active and interpretative experience for the viewer.
Berman Contemporary was established to promote the work created by these local artists. The gallery further aims to establish a synergistic network between South African artists and their global contemporaries, many of whom evidently want to engage with the current South African art scene – not only as observers, but as active analysts, experimenters and contributors within this context and with this specific audience in mind.
