National Art Gallery of Namibia
The National Art Gallery of Namibia (NAGN) is situated on the corner of Robert Mugabe Avenue and John Meinert Street in Windhoek, the capital city of Namibia. The NAGN formally came into being with the promulgation of the National Art Gallery of Namibia Act 14 of 2000. The NAGN is a national museum, housing the NAGN Permanent Collection and the Arts Association Heritage Trust Permanent Collection. The NAGN also hosts contemporary exhibitions of Regional, National and International Art.
MOBILE EXHIBITION SYSTEM OF THE NAGN
The National Art Gallery of Namibia is the custodian of the country's national heritage. It has a duty to collect, collate, preserve and display Namibia's heritage for future generations to come. It is in this light, that the Gallery has been expanding its current mandate of decentralization in order to reach a broader section of the population to provide them with an education about their heritage and the country's material culture. The Gallery is entering a new role by educating Namibians about what is in the space and the importance of its present collection and the needs for expanding it.
The Mobile Exhibition is a unique project that is aimed to serve small town schools, institutions and residents in rural Namibia. This project also supports the 'decentralization' notion of the Namibian Government where the NAGN provides services to people outside Windhoek as part of the NAGN's outreach programme.
