STEVENSON is a contemporary art gallery with spaces in Cape Town and Johannesburg, and is jointly owned by its directors. The gallery opened as Michael Stevenson in Cape Town in 2003, and subsequently partnered with David Brodie in Johannesburg in 2008. That same year the Cape Town gallery moved into its current premises in Woodstock, and in November 2010 the Johannesburg space relocated to Juta Street, Braamfontein.
The gallery has hosted a series of solo and group exhibitions that engage with contemporary art practice in South Africa as well as Africa and its diaspora. In addition to giving (South) African artists access to the rest of the world, its FOREX programme, started in 2009, has brought the work of international artists like Francis Alÿs, Rineke Dijkstra, Thomas Hirschhorn, Glenn Ligon and Walid Raad to South Africa, often for the first time.
A cornerstone of Stevenson is its active publication programme that includes catalogues for many of its exhibitions and artists. Because of its location, art fairs are particularly important to the gallery: over the past year, Stevenson has participated in Frieze New York, Art Basel, abc (Berlin), Unseen (Amsterdam), Frieze London, Paris Photo and Art Basel Miami Beach.
