Art Meets Camera does not operate as a permanent gallery space due to the importance of site specificity in our curated exhibitions. Our approach to art is one where the meaning of the work is directly informed by the space in which it functions. Exhibitions are curated to explore the influence of visual culture and visual technology on contemporary practice and in so doing to highlight historical misconceptions relating to issues of representation.
The artists we work with consider the role of photography as part of their thought process, either visually or conceptually present in the resulting artwork.
Art Meets Camera is a Cape Town based organisation directed by Michaela Limberis. Working with a number of artists in an ongoing partnership, we facilitate discussions around contemporary local practice and produce video content on local artists and exhibitions in our offshoot company Art Meets TV. Art Meets TV aims to eventually create an extensive archive of contemporary art practice on the African continent by recording future histories.
