A4 is a super cool (and necessary) space situated in District Six, Cape Town. It’s a free to public art centre that offers an exhibition space, a library, and a residency program.

Fashion designer and co-ordinator, Hamzeh Alfarahneh says, ‘TASCHEN and Frank Schönau provide the public with fantastic access to a range of practises and ideas. A4 Arts partners with existing organisations to nurture the artistic landscape in Southern Africa. The pop-up provides a place for conversation and collaboration.’
