An Art & Culture, weekend-long immersion – The BMW Art Generation, proudly supported by FNB brings celebrated and established artists, curators and academics into the same room as an emerging generation of future greats for a conference of global creative thought on African soil. Featuring field leaders, the weekend’s conversations will span themes including artistic practices relevant to our ecosystem, collection as cultural ownership, as well curation as a tool to recreate narratives.

Programming will be further activated through a selection of curated open studios, performances, live music as well as a lifestyle market featuring food, coffee, wine, design and fashion stalls demonstrating Johannesburg’s reach as the continent’s cultural capital.

Located in central Johannesburg, Th BMW Art Generation will be hosted at The Centre for the Less Good Idea. A space conceptualized by William Kentridge to pursue incidental discoveries made in the process of producing working, the space prioritises process as a resource. Extending this premise to The BMW Art Generation, we aim to explore the unforeseeable future of contemporary African art by allowing discourse and discovery through conversations that usually take place in abstract of our continent.

Event details

The Anglo American art and object collection is a combination of art collected over several decades through four different companies: Anglo American, de Beers Group, Anglo American Platinum and Kumba Iron Ore.

The collection comprises of 3600 works, with around 1000 pieces in the collection on display at the newly commissioned Rosebank offices. Although vast, the collection experienced an acquisition hiatus from the early 2000s until 2021 creating a significant gap in the collection’s representation of contemporary art. The collection now has a dedicated curator, Megan Scott, tasked with its cataloguing and digitisation, opening an exciting new chapter which will see the gradual procurement of significant works that reflect our contemporary South African and African art world.
