Strauss & Co Museum Moments art talks

Thursday Sep 30 18:00    
As part of their dedication to furthering arts education in South Africa, the country's leading fine art auction house Strauss & Co host regular 'Virtual Art Talks' on Zoom with leading art experts and curators. These insightful online discussions are then later shared on the Strauss & Co YouTube channel.

Strauss & Co's Museum Moments series sheds light on interesting museum spaces that may otherwise be neglected in the public imagination. The talks highlight the marvellous collections contained within these spaces and museum curators discuss the stories they strive to share through these collections and how they have been brought together. As well as looking at the museum collections, Museum Moments also provides fascinating insights into the history of each venue, its origins, architecture, vision and activities and covers plenty of lesser-known South African art museums as well as the more famous ones.
