The Red Location Museum and Gallery

Port Elizabeth, Olof Palme Street, New Brighton

The Red Location Gallery was designed to promote art in the township in the ‘culturally alive’ New Brighton.

The Red Location Museum is a primary development of the Red Location Cultural Precinct which is a not-for-commercial urban renewal development under the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality. It is designed to challenge conventional views of Museum design. The Museum draws on the work of Andreas Huyssen who has written extensively on the concept of memory and history.

Visitors are not treated as consumers but active participants. The conventions of representing history as a single story are challenged through the design of the Museum spaces. The past is represented as a set of memories that are disconnected yet bound together by themes.
