Artwork created in South Africa during the apartheid years of 1948 to 1990.

During this period works by black artists and artists who expressed criticism of the regime were not considered worthy of inclusion in South Africa public or private collections. This resulted in the purchase of the works by individuals residing outside the country.

The Ifa Lethu Foundation was formed in 2005 with the aim of repatriating these artworks to their country of origin where they could take their rightful place as heritage objects.

The exhibition includes approximately 50 works and also includes an installation of resistance posters from the era.
