Zeitz MOCAA opens at V&A

The Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA) was officially unveiled to the public at the V&A Waterfront’s Silo District on Friday, 22 September. The R500m project is a joint not-for-profit partnership between the V&A Waterfront and German business entrepreneur Jochen Zeitz.

Conceptualised by the V&A Waterfront in consultation with Heatherwick Studio, the museum is housed in a building that had humble beginnings as part of an industrial shipping facility in the Cape Town Harbour. The almost 100-year-old grain silo today has an entirely new purpose as custodian of some of the most important contemporary artwork on the African continent.
