The Centre for African Studies Gallery is a multi-use space which hosts a regular programme of exhibitions, film screenings, seminars, workshops and conferences. Conceptualized as a site of public engagement, and as a site of learning, it allows us to incorporate a significant focus on visual culture and performance in our graduate programme. The CAS Gallery works in close association with the Michaelis Galleries and the Harry Oppenheimer Institute.
