Writing Art History Since 2002

JOHANNESBURG, Dec. 9, 2010 – Two years before Gerard Sekoto’s death in Paris in March 1993, aged 80, the painter received the 1991 Vita Art Award. Despite living a life of penury, Sekoto generously donated his prize money to JAG, on condition the monies be used towards a special day for the youth. Every year since, the gallery has continued to honour the artist’s wish by celebrating the Gerard Sekoto Youth Festival. Read more here.
