Timed Online Auction, 28 June - 8 July 2024

Art Club
About the Session

Art Club is a live event that alternates between our Johannesburg and Cape Town salerooms, every Tuesday of every month coinciding with a monthly online auction. It provides the public with an opportunity to learn from the company’s specialists and forms part of Strauss & Co’s commitment to further education and in-person hospitality.

Senior specialist Ian Hunter will deliver a captivating lecture on the vibrant Eastern Cape landscape and the profound influence of local artists. Following the lecture, join Henrietta Dax, owner of Cape Town’s oldest bookstore Clarke’s Bookshop. Dax will share stories from her collection of ceramics by longtime friend Hylton Nel and their recent trip to Kim Jones’ latest Dior collection in Paris, influenced by Nel’s work whose whimsical charm and cultural depth continue to inspire. Hosted by writer Nkgopoleng Moloi, the evening is a celebration of enduring narratives told through art.

Venue: 2nd Floor, Brickfield Canvas, 35 Brickfield Road, Woodstock, Cape Town
