DAG COLLABORATIONS (article first published : 2002-05-6)

The Durban Art Gallery has made important links with conferences held at the ICC because it feels that DAG are ideally situated to add value to the delegates’ experience of Durban. The year 2001 was extremely productive as the Racism Conference brought a record number of visitors to the city.

DAG arranged several exhibitions to coincide with this and many delegates from all over the world took the opportunity of visiting the gallery to familiarise themselves with local art and artists. This had a spin-off effect in that their interest to purchase artworks was aroused and many subsequently visited the African Art Centre and Bat Centre where they were able to purchase works by local artists.

Previously successful collaborations have been the World Aids Conference in 200 when the DAG held seven exhibitions around the topic and brought the traffic to a standstill with the “wrapping” of the City Hall with a bright red ribbon. The World Flower Show also saw floral art take pride of place in the gallery. Beautiful living arrangements were made and local and international artworks from our collection were displayed in the Circular Gallery.
