In 1993 the Thami Mnyele Foundation initiated the exhibition "Zuider Kruis/ Southern Cross" in Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, an exhibition of contemporary art from South Africa with artists who had been taking part in the Venice Biennale in the year before. Now 19 years later, the Thami Mnyele Foundation shows again only works of artists from South Africa, now in the exhibition "Next Generation" in cooperation with Pulchri The Hague. "Next Generation" presents a selection of 20 contemporary artists from South Africa, who have been working in the Thami Mnyele Foundation as "Artist-in-Residence" during the past years.
Out of the works of the more than sixty artists who have been staying in the studio over the last twenty years, the Thami Mnyele Foundation, in cooperation with the Pulchri Studio, The Hague, has selected the work of only South African artists. The exhibited works were made by the artists during their stay in Amsterdam and donated to the Thami Mnyele Foundation.
