About Galerie Noko
Galerie NOKO is housed in a landmark building that has recently been renovated to contemporary values on one of Port Elizabeth’s main route, Russell road. A uniquely positioned building, it is bordered on the back by Campbell street as it faces Russell road and on either sides by Bain and Moffat streets.
Galerie NOKO’s pursuit is to provide a contemporary space for visual arts and to give maximum opportunity to artists and as well as marry their works to its audience. We house artist residency space, an exhibition space and a contemporary art Gallery that focuses on contemporary, modern and abstract arts. The Gallery is envisaged to serve as a fulcrum for established or renowned artists and also as the ultimate springboard to launch professional careers of distinguished emerging artists. Galerie NOKO aims to create an integrated dialogue of cultures between the international, national and local artists
We serve as an art advisory and consultancy sounding board to art collectors and the art community at large. The double storey facility is a year – round destination in its own right and a landmark for Port Elizabeth.
The ground floor houses the contemporary art gallery with a dedicated ceramic exhibition space where regular changing exhibitions is presented . The upper floor contains artist residency space, a state of the art exhibition space that is ideal for performance art, installations, video installations, and a 30 – 50 person conference and workshop facility.
