RK CONTEMPORARY

Established in 2017 as a satellite of Gallery Riebeek Kasteel (founded in 2012), RK Contemporary serves as a platform spotlighting both established contemporary artists and emerging talent from South Africa. Nestled in the picturesque setting of Riebeek Kasteel, the gallery orchestrates monthly exhibitions spanning diverse artistic mediums such as painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking, and ceramics. Thematic showcases delve into poignant societal issues, including identity, gender dynamics, and environmental concerns.

Collaborative opportunities are extended to emerging artists, empowering them to co-curate themed group exhibitions, honing their curatorial prowess and fostering artistic dialogue. RK Contemporary collaborates with the Spier Arts Trust’s The Creative Block project, promoting artists by providing them with exposure and exhibition opportunities within the gallery’s group exhibitions. As a founding member of Solo Studios, RK Contemporary actively contributes to an immersive art weekend that cultivates synergies among artists and the local community. In March 2024, RK Contemporary expanded its footprint with the inauguration of its second gallery in the vibrant enclave of De Waterkant, Cape Town.
