David Krut Projects
The first kid on the rather now vibrant arts block that is Jan Smuts Avenue, David Krut Projects is the brainchild of London artist David Krut, who got involved with the South African art scene in the 1990s. David Krut Projects has since become a staple art gallery in Johannesburg, showcases local artists and many works produced onsite in their experimental workshop. David Krut Projects also hosts outside exhibitions ranging from prints and paintings to fashion and architecture. The adjacent bookshop is a wonderful place to pick up books on local art, design and photography. Although this space on Jan Smuts Avenue is the project’s main hub, David Krut also operates galleries in downtown Johannesburg, Cape Town and New York.
