City Art Walk
Many of Cape Town’s best contemporary galleries are in easy walking distance of one another in the city center. Begin at the AVA Gallery, a nonprofit multimedia gallery in historic quarters that gives special attention to Western Cape artists. From there, check out iart, an expansive modern space geared toward serious collectors, representing both well-established and up-and-coming talents. Nearby João Ferreira Gallery has an extensive collection of mixed-media works divided between two gallery spaces. Shutterbugs shouldn’t miss the Photographers Gallery ZA, where new trends in South African photography are showcased.
Refuel after art browsing at Bird’s Boutique Cafe, an artsy spot in an 18th-century former residence where the sound of recorded birdsong wafts through the air. If that doesn’t revive you, the refreshing herbal teas and home-baked chicken pie will.
