At the Open Society Foundations (OSF) we have long supported artistic endeavours that aim to inspire creative conversation around the values of an open society.
The Open Society Foundations hosts an annual Moving Walls exhibition series that explores a variety of social justice and human rights issues through documentary practice. Since 1998, Moving Walls has featured over 200 photographers and artists from around the world, whose work address a variety of social justice and human rights issues.
This year, to mark 25 years of grant making in South Africa, the Open Society Foundation for South Africa (OSF-SA) and the OSF Documentary Photography Project will feature two exhibitions in partnership with the Market Photo Workshop, Ilan Godfrey, Oxpeckers Center for Environmental Journalism and Publish What you Pay South Africa.
Exhibitions will be held at the new OSF-SA office in the CBD, Cape Town and at Community House in Salt River, Cape Town, in collaboration with several grantees and partners of OSF-SA, featuring the work of specially commissioned young, black curators.
