The Goodman gallery has always been touted as a leading gallery on South African contemporary art. When I visited this was not so, an interactive exhibition with some photos and less than 20 items shown to me by the staff.

A small but well layer out gallery with good lighting & divided spaces. The exhibit was good & the write up interesting. The staff were friendly & very helpful in directing us to other contemporary galleries.

The Goodman Gallery is a Johannesburg institution with a consistently high standard of contemporary art display. Exhibitions change monthly most of the time so get on their mailing list to stay up to date. A quiet, contemplative white cube type space where you will often...More

I visited the gallery this week and I was swept away by WYE, Mikhael Zubotzky's film on three screens. The reflective surfaces, the sand and the beach chairs greatly contributed to the experience of viewing the work, which exacts a beehive of ideas and thoughts...More

This is a well regarded local art gallery known for spotting emerging talent. They have good exhibits from time to time. Complements Everard Read Gallery for a good sense of what's happening with investment grade and emerging investment grade artists.

We aren't specifically art lovers. Curiosity got the better of us and we visited the gallery. We are happy that we did. The art really was beautiful and the building itself was an artwork, interesting and different. Worth a visit, whether you are an art...More

This gallery is very small and for us I am afraid the few works were 100% without merit. We were in and out within 5 minutes and rather disappointed. This gallery seems to be one for people with very 'avant garde' tastes.
