n De Arte - The Unisa Art Gallery : an old collection and a new curator : collecting and curating




Bongani Mkhonza is the first permanent curator to be appointed to the Unisa Art Gallery in two years. I met him at the gallery in February 2010 and was impressed by his energy and enthusiasm for the collection, despite the difficulties presented by the present site, on the fifth floor of the Theo van Wijk building, and the overcrowded storage facilities. Bongani joined the gallery in August 2009 and believes this collection has the major advantage of being shaped by a historically diverse acquisition strategy from its inception.
