About Us


The Space

DAOR Contemporary Gallery is located inside the bustling Port of Cape Town near the Zeitz MOCAA in the Silo district. Rescued from Transnet, shaped, cleaned, processed and transformed to showcase and celebrate some of the most exciting contemporary African artists of our times.


Daor Contemporary is pleased to present 51.3%. An all-female group exhibition in celebration of Women’s Month, opening on 25 July 2019 @ 6pm.

51.3% takes its title from the percentage of citizens in South Africa that were recorded as female in the last census. This group exhibition features eleven notable contemporary talents, and will be on view until 30 August 2019.

See you soon!


Daor Contemporary is pleased to present The Heart of the Matter, an exhibition by Ricky Burnett, Anton Karstel, and Iaan Waldeck, opening on 5 June 2019 @ 6pm. 

The exhibition, curated by the artists themselves, was born from a shared interest in the themes of memory, temporality, the relationship between image and reality, immateriality and materiality, and the role of the sacred. The Heart of the Matter nudges and provokes the viewer to consider these themes through the artists’ distinctive approach to materials.  

See you there
