Spellbinders: Myths, Mysteries and Hidden Tales

What does an elephant skull have to do with abstract sculpture? How did conservators foil a hidden attack from Germany? Why would you find a unicorn under a mulberry tree? Explore the surprising answers to these mysteries at Spellbinders, an exhibition dealing with the art of stories – and the stories of art.

Call and Response: First engagements with a KwaZulu–Natal heritage collection.

This exhibition draws on JAG’s recently acquired Maritz collection of heritage artefacts from various parts of the KwaZulu-Natal region. This collection has further enhanced and cemented the JAG’s reputation for having one of the finest traditional Southern African art collections in the world.
