About Fried Contemporary Art Gallery

Founded in 2005, Fried Contemporary is the leading art gallery in Pretoria. In June 2014 the gallery changed ownership, with Mika Thom as its new director. It focuses on curated exhibitions by artists from South Africa.  The Collector’s Room, launched in August 2014, is a dedicated art space in the gallery that showcases the works of professional artists to collectors and invited guests.

The first series of curated exhibitions, which started in October 2014, took place in three parts and  broadly focused on artists from Pretoria. The first, titled: ‘Capital Past’, looked at artists who had a strong connection to the city,  who either lived or worked in the capital for a significant part of their careers.  Artists included Alexis Preller; Anton van Wouw; Bettie Cillers-Barnard; Braam Kruger; Eduardo Villa; Ernest Cole; Frikkie Eloff; Gerard Sekoto; Jacobus Hendrik Pierneef; Lucky Madlo Sibiya; Robert Hodgins; Sydney Khumalo and Walter Whall Battiss. The second exhibition in the series, titled: ‘Capital Contemporary’, showcased a selection of works by artists who either studied or lived and worked here for a significant part of their careers, and who currently live somewhere else, either in another city in South Africa or another country. Examples of artists include: Abrie Fourie; Barbara Wildenboer; Barend De Wet; Cecil Heystek; Christiaan Diedericks; Claudette Schreuders; Colbert Mashile; David Goldblatt; Diana Hyslop; Donna Kukama; Egon Tania; Gerhard Marx; Hanneke Benade; Johann van der Schijff; Judith Mason; Kudzi Chiurai; Maja Marx; Minnette Vari; Norman Catherine; Richard Forbes; Wayne Barker and Wim Botha. The third exhibition in the series, titled: ‘Capital Present’, looked at artists who currently live and work in the city, and who have a strong national or international presence. Examples of artists include: Angus Taylor; Berco Wilsenach; Carla Crafford; Cobus Haupt; Daandrey Steyn; Diane Victor; Dylan Graham; Eric Duplan; Frank Marshall; Frikkie Eksteen; Guy Du Toit; Ian Redelinghuys; Jan van der Merwe ; Johan Thom; Lawrence Lemoana; Rina Stutzer; Sarel Petrus; Setlamorago Mashilo; Thabo Pitso and Vusi Beauchamp.

Inspired by the potential of Pretoria as a creative hotbed, the gallery has subsequently launched an annual exhibition programme, titled ‘Progeny’ which literally means ‘offspring’ or ‘descendants’. The aim of this annual exhibition programme is to provide a platform for younger artists who are the next generation of torchbearers for artists to follow.

The gallery also offers various internship programmes and opportunities for young curators and companies to work with us.

Please contact Shenaz Mahomed regarding internships and curator proposals at shenaz@friedcontemporary.com or tel: 012 346 0158

For collaboration and partnering opportunities please contact Mika Thom, Director, tel: 012 346 0158 or email mikathom@friedcontemporary.com
