MTN Art Collection

Johannesburg, 216 14th Avenue, Fairlands

In September 1997 MTN, one of the leading cell phone companies in South Africa, made a modest purchase of artworks by South African artists. This marked the beginning of what has become a major corporate collection of South African art. Now comprised of over 1400 African and South African works, the collection has been energetically researched, published, traveled, exhibited, discussed, debated and admired. The Art Collection is linked to a major ongoing arts education programme supported by the MTN South Africa Foundation, bringing resources and learning materials into schools across the country.
