NATIONAL GALLERY OF ZIMBABWE
The National Gallery of Zimbabwe has been in existence for more than 55 years, and in its lifetime has witnessed the dramatic shift in the country from colonialism to independence. In addition, it has been central to the meteoric rise of Zimbabwean artists in the global art market. The gallery is considered both a museum and a contemporary art gallery. The reason for this is that the institution has a significant permanent collection of both traditional African artefacts and works by African and European master artists, at the same time promotes contemporary art in and outside Zimbabwe by way of changing exhibitions. The collection consists of about 6,000 works.
