For more than ten years, the internationally oriented Daimler Art Collection has committed itself to presenting and promoting South African artists. Highly regarded both in South Africa and beyond, its Mercedes-Benz Award has been awarded to authors, musicians, artists, architects, and fashion designers whose works have been prominently displayed in galleries and at biennials worldwide, including Germany’s Documenta exhibition—widely regarded as one of the most important gatherings in contemporary art.

Ampersand
presents more than fifty works of contemporary South African photography, sculpture, video art, and installation pieces side by side with selected works from the Daimler Art Collection, bringing together a startling array of talent, including established artists like Robert Filliou, Jan Henderikse, Sue Williamson, and Willem Boshoff as well as promising representatives of the younger generation.
