At this point in history, we face a barrage of crises; we are bombarded on a daily basis with bad news.

Kendell Geers Responds To Riason Naidoo

on .

Dear colleagues, partners, members of the media and friends
I am very sad to read that Riason Naidoo’s contract as director of Iziko SANG will not be renewed because, on a human level, I understand that it is never pleasant to lose one’s job. In that regard, I send my condolences.
On the other hand I will not be supporting his plea and I am in complete solidarity with the decision to not renew his contract.

Riason Naidoo: Media Statement on the Directorship of Iziko SANG

on .

Dear colleagues, partners, members of the media and friends.
I write to inform you that I have reached the end of my 5-year-contract as Director of Iziko Art Collections, which concerns the South African National Gallery & Old Town House museums under the umbrella of Iziko Museums of South Africa. It has come as somewhat of a surprise to me that I’ve been requested by Iziko to vacate my position and it is unfortunate that Iziko did not see it fit to extend my contract. I do believe that the actions of Iziko are unfair in this regard and will be looking to contest this decision further.
