Join us for a morning view of the special exhibition South Africa: the art of a nation at the British Museum on January 21.

From incredible examples of early rock art and ancient treasures to powerful contemporary works, the exhibition features beautiful and important objects, which illustrate South Africa’s rich history. See the history of a nation from a new perspective and celebrate the diverse art created by the many people who have helped shape South Africa’s story.
