Contemporary Art in a Contemporary Building

Next door to (and associated with) the Everard Read Gallery (probably the oldest in Joburg) is this beautiful gallery. You definitely want to stop by to check out the art and the architecture. If you are lucky, you might even get to meet Mark Read, who is as nice, bright and committed to his field and his country as you will find.

There is a cultivation of fine arts happening in South Africa's major cities right now and Johannesburg, in particular, has developed into a haven for contemporary artists. Rosebank, the next neighborhood over from the affluent suburb of Sandton, has a Miami-esque Design District with high end shops, restaurants, and galleries. It's here where you will find Circa Gallery, an architectural masterpiece designed by architect Pierre Swanepoel of studioMAS. The building is elliptical in shape with an incline ramp leading visitors around the gallery's perimeter, much like the experience of walking through the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City. The exterior is covered in 400 vertical aluminum bars which allow the daylight to stream through. After taking in the contemporary art and photography on display at Circa, use the walkway to enter the attached Everard Read gallery, which is located across Keyes Avenue. It's Circa's sister gallery and South Africa's oldest commercial art gallery.
