Norval Foundation

June 28, 2022

Dedicated to the research, understanding and care of twentieth and twenty-first-century visual art from Africa and its diasporas.

Norval Foundation 

Where to find it?

Located in the Steenberg area of Cape Town. Adjacent to Table Mountain National Park. The Norval Foundation combines the experience of art with an appreciation for nature.

The Art & Gardens:

The Sculpture Garden, outdoor amphitheater, and purpose-built exhibition spaces. Also, research libraries are situated in a unique setting that offers visitors a multisensory experience.

The Modern Gallery:

This art gallery aims to create high-quality exhibitions and public programming to broaden our understanding of the visual arts. The Norval Foundation is honoured to be the custodian of the Gerard Sekoto Foundation. In conclusion, the Edoardo Villa Estate Collection and the Alexis Preller Archive. Their ethos is believing that art has the power to enrich our lives. Undoubtedly allowing artists to contribute to our communities in a profound way.

The Norval Family:

The Norval family are the founders and initial funders of the Norval Foundation. Their aim is to make art widely accessible to local and international visitors by creating a self-sustaining centre for art. The proceeds from capital donations will be used to secure the foundation for future generations.

Surprisingly, we spent an hour walking around this wonderful gallery. It was colourful. The displays are free-flowing and simply beautiful. Unquestionably, one of the very best museums to visit in Cape Town. Last but not least, as you walk in the lights flick on. It’s an excellent experience and I highly recommend you visit this on your next trip to Cape Town.
