Exhibition opening: 5 November 2020
The group exhibition of contemporary Namibian art is a celebration of the thirtieth anniversary of the independence of one of the last colonies on the African continent.
The exhibition is the result of collaborative work with the National Art Gallery of Namibia (NAGN) and the works that you will be able to see were chosen at the beginning of February of 2020 by the joint forces of our museum and NAGN in Windhoek, the capital city of Namibia.

The Cultural Heritage of Topčider
A tour organized by the Museum of African Art, memorial House of King Peter and Heritage House
Since the 19th century the urban planning of Topčider (one of Belgrade's many hills) was envisioned as a city oasis, with numerous parks, picnic spots, large areas of forest and greenery. Hidden within it are numerous villas, summer houses and art studios built at the beginning of the 20th century. Through the “Cultural Heritage of Topčider” tour we will reveal different cultural institutions. During this tour, you can visit Museum of African Art, the memorial House of King Peter, Archive of Yugoslavia, Heritage House – the Legacy of Petar Lubarda, Museum Vespa Serbia, House of Olga Jančić and Public Aquarium and Tropicarium Belgrade.
