curator candice berman opens a new gallery in the heart of sandton
Posted: 20 August 2018
Art curator, Candice Berman has opened a new gallery at 11 Alice Lane – the heart of the Sandton precinct. The establishment of Berman Contemporary marks Berman’s second gallery opening since she left university and kickstarted her career in independent art curation in 2013, founding the Candice Berman Fine Art Gallery in the Riverside Shopping Centre in Bryanston. Berman’s appreciation for the art world was fostered early in life. She attributes her sense of personal liberation and her groundedness as an individual to her attendance at Michael Mount Waldorf Primary School in Bryanston. While completing her tertiary education, she was employed at an art gallery in Johannesburg, where she nurtured and developed her growing love for art. Her fascination lies with the pioneering art movements, particularly that of South African Neo-Expressionism - as seen in the works of Daniel Stompie Selibe and John-Michael Metelerkamp. The newly established Berman Contemporary plays host to both emerging and acclaimed South African and contemporary artists including Stefan Blom, Daniel Stompie Selibe, Ingrid Bolton and Robyn Denny. In addition to hosting curated exhibitions the Berman Contemporary offer a full service whereby they assist clients in the private and corporate spaces with curating their art collections and art consultation services. They also offer full framing service and delivery and installation services. The framing service is quite special as the gallery does custom and boutique framing to the 5 levels as prescribed by the British Fine Art Trade Guild. If your appreciation for art extends to architecture and design, Berman Contemporary also help in this space. They cater for hotels and developments requiring specially designed mouldings and artwork or prints. They work with the architects or interior designers to ensure that everything meets your specific needs. Berman Contemporary provides art aficionados with a glimpse into the exhibition by means of a virtual showroom. Take the tour here.
