If you’re looking to get an artistic feel for the colourful cultural heritage of South Africa and specifically Cape Town, you won’t be disappointed at the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA) – the largest museum of contemporary African art in the world. It is a non-profit organisation housing the largest collection of modern art from South Africa, and numerous parts of the African continent.
The Zeitz Museum is quite the architectural work of art itself. It is a redesigned and remodelled structure – collects, preserves, researches and exhibits twenty-first-century art from Africa and its Diaspora. Officially opened in September 2017, it houses over one hundred galleries. It has over nine floors and accommodates a permanent collection of cutting edge African art. It features international as well as temporary exhibitions. These include Centres for Art Education, Curatorial Excellence, Performative Practice, Photography, the Moving Image and the Costume Institute.
