The Spier Art Collection is one of the largest contemporary collections of South African art in the country. Works in a variety of mediums offer a richly diverse portrayal of a vibrant country in transition.

Artworks are given the context they deserve: displayed in our meticulously restored Cape Dutch buildings, meeting rooms and throughout the Spier Hotel. Each venue is treated as an exhibition space, showing works by both emerging and established artists.

These works by Tamlin Blake, often produced in collaboration with the Qubeka Bead Studio, are created from discarded trash.

In addition to acquiring works from artists’ studios, galleries and art auctions, Spier also regularly commissions large-scale works. Paul Emmanuel’s ‘Transitions’ was seen by 2 500 Spier visitors before it went on to be exhibited internationally.
