The MOCAA, described as ‘Africa’s Tate Modern’, will be the continent’s biggest ever art museum

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

In Cape Town, on one of the world’s most recognisable waterfronts in the world, a vast new art museum, the biggest ever in Africa, is about to open, creating the biggest buzz in the continent’s collective creative world for many years.

The Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA) has already been described as “Africa’s Tate Modern”. Designed by Heatherwick Studios, the impending museum sits on the V&A waterfront in the historic Grain Silo Complex. Designed as a space for Africa’s artists to tell their stories through a variety of media, Zeitz MOCAA looks to stem the flow of creatives forced to look to venues beyond the continent to showcase their work.
