In recent years, SMAC Gallery has hosted a number of group exhibitions, featuring the work of artists currently living and working on the African continent. This year SMAC is proud to present Disclosure.
To disclose is to peel back the veils of uncertainty and secrecy; to arrive at a centre of veracity, the term suggests the availability of candid communication and decoded information.
With almost infinite interpretations, each true within its context, Disclosure is an exercise in offering insight into the thematic premise of current artistic practice within a larger regional discourse.

This year marks the tenth year since SMAC Gallery first opened its doors to the public in Stellenbosch in 2007. The gallery opened a second exhibition space in 2011 in Cape Town, and in 2016, opened a third gallery in Johannesburg.
In celebration of the past decade, SMAC will present a series of exhibitions, showcasing highlights from the gallery’s exhibition history. In addition to new artworks, this series of exhibitions will include a combination of Modern and contemporary works by artists represented by SMAC gallery as well as artists who have previously exhibited work at the gallery.
SMAC manages a programme of exhibitions and projects that contribute toward understandings of discourse around African contemporary art; and represents established and emerging artists practicing in South Africa, on the African continent and further abroad. The gallery also offers opportunities for critical re-evaluation of South African art history within a global context. In addition to this exhibitions programme SMAC Gallery maintains a publishing initiative that has, to date, published over 26 titles.
