South African artists are invited to apply for their contemporary artwork to be considered for acquisition by the Art Bank of South Africa (artbankSA). The artbankSA annually considers acquiring special pieces of art for its own growing permanent collection. The artbankSA is tasked with purchasing artworks from South African artists, particularly that of emerging artists in order to lease and sell the artworks to South African government departments, private companies and private individuals. It is a national programme of the Department of Arts and Culture as part of the Mzansi Golden Economy (MGE) strategy implementation and is hosted by the National Museum Bloemfontein, an agency of the Department of Arts and Culture. The vision of the artbankSA is to promote, foster and stimulate a vibrant market for the collection of South African contemporary visual art.
