If you are a Johannesburg city slicker,you might have at some point noticed this new "building" in the Rosebank area.Word has it that Everard Read have finally realized that despite making heaps and heaps of cash from the let's call it"stale" art they've been pushing, that the next generation of art investors migh not buy their works like it's going out of fashion(literally).

Hence,these fat cats did some good brainstorming and came up with a nifty plan to impress us young, biased and selective art lovers.Not only did they launch a more contemporary little brother,but they also built a monument that made it difficult not to be taken serious.Circa gallery looks like a post modern monument,designed by South African architect studio, studioMAS architects and urban design.

This gallery can be regarded as an artwork in itself and has been getting a whole lot of well deserved attention.

go visit the studioMAS here!
