Members Talk: Stefan Hundt – Curating a Corporate Collection

March 23 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free For Members

Norval Foundation Members are invited to a members-only talk by Stefan Hundt, titled “Curating a Corporate Collection”. Learn about the complex narratives and strategies that go into putting together a corporate collection, contextualised by the exhibition “Collector’s Focus: Nudes in the Sanlam Art Collection”.  

As curator of the Sanlam Art Collection, Stefan is responsible for the regular exhibitions at the Sanlam Art Gallery, as well as regular national travelling exhibitions that have showcased the Sanlam Art Collection and first time solo exhibitions by under-recognised artists. Since his appointment the collection has grown considerably in valued and holdings dating from late 19th Century to the present.

Prior to his appointment at Sanlam, he served as curator for the Oliewenhuis Art Museum, a satellite of the National Museum in Bloemfontein.  He continues to practice as an art historian publishing articles on corporate collecting and catalogues featuring the Sanlam Art Collection and selected artists.  For the past 20 years he has played an active role in the South African art world, 16 of which have been dedicated to expanding the Sanlam’s investment in its art collection.
