The FUBA Archive Project

The Federated Union of Black Artists (FUBA) was established in 1978 to support black artists, providing training and advancing careers at a time when apartheid dispensation allowed for few other alternatives to black artists. FUBA’s legacy and influence on the development of late 20th century South African Art, including the Resistance Art movement, is an important part of our cultural history – and JAG’s FUBA Archive represents a significant part of this legacy. JAG, The Friends of JAG supported by Breinstorm Brand Architects & MAKDCT took on the project of protecting the rich legacy of FUBA by digitising this archive with support from the United States Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation. The Archive was collected by Elza Miles with support from the Embassy of the Royal Netherlands.
