A note from the Director of Global Exhibitions

Dear artists,


Thank you for sharing your artwork with SAQA for Forced to Flee.  The exhibition remains popular and continues to travel to museums despite the lockdowns caused by the pandemic.  Although we have already extended the tour date and the exhibition is completely sold out, I continue to receive requests from museums to host it.  This is a testament to the power of your work and your message.  Thank you for sharing it with the world!
