Inside Out Centre for the Arts



The Inside Out Centre for the Arts was founded by internationally renowned artist-photographer Roger Ballen to act as an art exhibition space and educational centre in Johannesburg. It presents shows exploring issues related to the African continent from a distinctively aesthetic and psychological perspective, and its inaugural exhibition End of the Game highlights the ecological crises on the African continent. The Centre also facilitates a dynamic programme of educational talks, panel discussions, masterclasses and presentations that reflect on the current exhibition and on topics relevant to arts and culture.

"A thought-provoking experience. I throughly enjoyed it from start to end. An important narrative surrounding life, death and artistry. A special thank you to Amanda for being so kind and for chatting after the show. I will definitely be back for another event."

"An amazing venue and very well curated and guided. The subject matter is grotesque but apart from the initial shrinking back, it is thought provoking from a historical and artistic viewpoint "

"The Gallery is beautiful, the art is really unique and I can only imagine how long it took to collect all of the pieces that were exhibited. Such a big fan of both Roger and Paul ???? "
