Nirox Arts Foundation and Artists' Residence

Photographer: Jon Hrusa


NIROX, is a private foundation established four years ago to cultivate arts in South Africa. The property is set on 15 hectares of land in a private nature reserve in South Africa's Cradle of Humankind, a World Heritage Site some 50 km north of Johannesburg. The Arts Foundation directed by Benji Liebmann includes a sculpture park laid out across the natural landscape, as well as an artist-in-residence programme for locally and internationally renowned artists. NIROX artists have included, amongst others, William Kentridge, Edoardo Villa, Marlene Dumas, and Auke de Vries.
