The Norval Foundation, opening to the public on April 28th, 2018, is a new centre for the research and exhibition of 20th and 21st century visual art from South Africa and beyond. Located in the Steenberg area of Cape Town, adjacent to Table Mountain National Park, the Norval Foundation combines the experience of art with an appreciation for nature.
Its sculpture garden, outdoor amphitheater, purpose built exhibition spaces, and research library are situated within a unique setting that will offer visitors a multisensory experience. This is complimented by a sophisticated restaurant and bar, a bespoke shop, and a children’s playground.
We aim to create high quality exhibitions and public programming to broaden our understanding of the visual arts. The Norval Foundation is honoured to be the custodians of the Gerard Sekoto Foundation, Edoardo Villa Estate Collection, and the Alexis Preller Archive. We believe that art has the power to enrich our lives and that artists contribute to our communities in a profound way.
Louis Norval and the Norval family are the founders and principal funders of the Norval Foundation through which they aim to make art widely accessible to local and international visitors. The proceeds from capital donations will be used to secure the foundation for future generations.
Please join us for our Private Garden Party Fundraiser to celebrate the opening of the Norval Foundation on Friday, 27 April 2018 and our Public Opening on Saturday, 28 April 2018.
