21 Icons and Mercedes-Benz Portrait of a Nation Exhibition

21 Icons, in conjunction with proud sponsor Mercedes Benz South Africa, presents an extensive indoor and outdoor exhibition: 21 Icons – Portrait of a Nation.

From 18 January until 9 March the remarkable portraits from Adrian Steirn’s 21 Icons project will be on display at the V&A Waterfront alongside the brand new Mercedes Benz C-Class. A visual celebration of the men and women who have changed South Africa for the better, the accompanying 21 Icons short films will also be screened regularly during this time at the V&A’s Amphitheatre.

Like the 21 Icons Airport Activations and exhibitions before it, this exhibition encourages the public to make use of the 21 Icons App, which features additional information about the project. This will provide a fully interactive experience – demonstrating the integrated, multimedia nature of the project.


18 Jan – 16 Feb – Pierhead outside the V&A

17 Feb – 9 March – Centre Court at V&A
