Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa

Touted as the continent’s most important art gallery even before it opened in late 2017, the six-story MOCAA occupies more than 40 old grain silos in the Cape Town harbor area. On top of the structure is the six-story Silo Hotel, an exclusive property that belongs to the well-known local hotelier Liz Biden. The museum, a partnership between the V&A Waterfront and former Puma CEO Jochen Zeitz, focuses on collecting, preserving, researching, and exhibiting contemporary art from Africa and its diaspora. Spread across the more than 100 galleries will eventually be a permanent collection, a Costume Institute, temporary exhibitions, and centers for art education, photography, and the moving image.
