Under the directorship of Nkule Mabaso, the University of Cape Town’s Michaelis Galleries, hosts a wide range of temporary exhibitions throughout the year. Regular collaborations with alumni and local and international visual arts organisations bring noteworthy art shows to these venues. The galleries are a unique opportunity for staff and students of the university to exhibit their artworks or curated exhibitions in a non-commercial, experimental space. It also forms an invaluable teaching resource, allowing students to learn and hone curatorial and exhibition design and management skills. Whilst the gallery complex is unique in that it is situated on a university campus, it is open to visitors from the general public. In keeping with a mission of promoting and celebrating the visual arts in a broad community context, the gallery regularly presents open lectures, walkabouts and workshops. The galleries are a unique opportunity for interested artists to share their practise with students of the university and exhibit their works or curated exhibitions in a non-commercial, experimental space.

The Galleries accepts local and international proposals on a rolling basis.
