The Meta Foundation has developed out of the need for August House Studios to be provided with programming that uplifts, develops and supports visual artists and their practice. The Foundation was founded in February of 2020, built on the idea of open access, particularly to individual constituents and community groups who historically had been excluded from mainstream education and creative resources. Everything that the Meta Foundation does is aimed at developing a healthy visual arts eco-system. There are three areas of focus; the artist, his/her practice and his/her ability to work within the visual arts market; the artwork and the collector or the buyer.
August House is an enclave for artists located in End Street in the Johannesburg CBD. It houses a thriving artistic community. The building currently houses 43 artists, some of whom are starting out and some who are well recognised South African artists. The mix of ages, genders, races and styles of work, allows the artist’s practice to grow and pushes them in new directions. Its notable tenants have included artists such as Mary Sibanda, Dineo Seshee Bopape and Lawrence Lemaoana, Mbongeni Richman Buthelezi, Gordon Froud, Joseph Gaylard, Nontobeko Ntombela, Gabi Ngcobo, Gonçalo Mabunda, Jacki McInnes, Nelson Makamo, Bie Venter, Kudzanai Chiurai and Nicholas Hlobo.
Ellis house is a collection of artists studio space located in Johannesburg. The building provides both space for artists to work and houses art related businesses. We draw to the building a plurality of identities and we strongly support art education and visual literacy that will ultimately promote and help with the sustainability of contemporary art and artists.
AUGUST HOUSE EXHIBITIONS
August House runs a number of Exhibitions, Open Studios and online exhibition throughout the year. The aim of this programming is to allow the public to meet the artists and see their work. The Online Exhibition programme gives a platform to young curators who are invited to select and curate an exhibition of their making.
