From 2012 to today, Avesta Group has been contracted to work on the planning and implementation of this beautiful project: the first African contemporary art museum in Africa.

 

Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa at the V&A Waterfront


A major new cultural institution is created in the historic Grain Silo at the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town. It is called Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA) in honour of the renowned Zeitz Collection, which forms the museum’s founding collection, and the support of Jochen Zeitz on the programming and acquisition funds.

 

The Zeitz Collection

Zeitz MOCAA focuses on collecting, preserving, researching and exhibiting cutting-edge contemporary art from Africa and its Diaspora. Zeitz MOCAA comprises over 9,500 sqm placing it among leading contemporary art museums worldwide. It is spread over four floors, of which 6,000 sqm (65,000 sqft) are dedicated to exhibition space.
