SMAC Gallery opened in 2007, on the first floor of the historic De Wet building in Church Street Stellenbosch and garnered a reputation for presenting large, museum-quality modern and contemporary exhibitions, accompanied by well researched catalogues, monographs and books. In 2011, SMAC opened a second gallery in central Cape Town to expand the scope of its activities. In November 2014, SMAC relocated its Cape Town gallery to a newly renovated 1200m2 space in the gallery precinct of Woodstock, Cape Town.
The gallery represents numerous established and emerging South African and international artists such as Richard Long and Arnaldo Pomodoro. Particularly hosting and exhibiting artists from the African continent such as Cyrus Kabiru. SMAC Cape Town facilitates and organizes artist’s residencies, as well as exchange programmes which provide opportunities for South African and African artists abroad. SMAC also participates in international art fairs such as: Arco Madrid; Artissima, Torino; 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair, London and Loop, Barcelona – to name a few.
The gallery is committed to a dual programme of museum-quality exhibitions which contribute towards artistic discourse in the country and abroad, as well as a strong contemporary focus which taps into the growth of Cape Town as a new contemporary art hub and an international platform for African contemporary art.
