A Disused Railway Truck at which a Roaring Trade is Driven,

1994, oil on canvas


'n Groepie swaksigtiges en twee blindes wat rugby speel, 2010, oil on canvas


This mid-career exhibition showcases a selection of works from the artist's career since 1989. On show are many of Karstel's works that were produced during the political transition, circa 1994. The works produced in 1995 reflect the violence and political turbulence of the time. The exhibition also features installations and bodies of work that were produced in Cape Town after the artist relocated from Pretoria in 1998.

EXHIBITION ON DIFFERENT MEDIA – Educational | Ongoing | Foyer

A new display of different art media and processes can be seen in the foyer of the museum. Examples of artworks from the museum's collection help to explain to visitors and learners what the differences are between the different media used by artists.




A STORY OF SOUTH AFRICAN ART | Ongoing | Albert Werth Hall

This selection of artworks from the permanent collection of the Pretoria Art Museum briefly reviews South African art. It includes works by early 20th century painters, the Resistance artists of the 1980s and artists of the 21st century. The exhibition is based on the secondary school syllabus, and the artworks are rotated regularly.



COROBRIK CERAMIC COLLECTION | Permanent display | Ceramic Gallery

Vusi Ntshalintshali, The Vision, stoneware

A selection of ceramics is on display, representing the development of studio ceramics and the work of traditional rural potters in South Africa over the past 30 years. Newly acquired ceramic pieces are added throughout the year.  



ASIA: GO TSAMAYA KE GO BONA – THEMBA MSIZA | 16 February to 31 March | Henry Preiss Hall

Themba Msiza, Untitled, acrylic on wood


Themba Msiza's first solo exhibition consists of 12 mixed media on superwood panels entitled ASIA: Go Tsamaya ke go Bona. The body of work on show reflects on the perpetual growth of regret, nostalgia, grief and some joy about what our fellow African brothers and sisters are confronted with here in our country. It holds up a mirror of how detached we as South Africans are from the rest of our continent and African foreign nationals' experiences of South Africa.


The exhibition will be opened by Kabelo Maja, Visual Arts Lecturer at the University of South Africa, on 16 February 2019 at 10:30 for 11:00. A walkabout of the exhibition will take place on 23 February at 11:00. The work on show will be viewable in the Henry Preiss Hall of the Pretoria Art Museum. The exhibition closes on Sunday, 31 March 2019.
