The Extension Collection



The incredible support for #TheLockdownCollection campaign created a powerful movement within the arts community and had artists reach out wanting to support the initiative. The Extension Collection’s curator, Gordon Froud, reached out to artists across South Africa, including those who had expressed an interest to contribute, inviting them to participate, to reflect on life during COVID-19 through their art.

The result is a collection of 21 extraordinary works – everything from drawings, to prints, sculptures and photographs – created by some of the country’s most respected artists. All proceeds of the sale (as well as any donations received) will go towards the Solidarity Fund and the Vulnerable Visual Artist Fund created by TLC.
