Calling all art and culture lovers! The renowned Zeitz MOCAA has finally re-opened its doors to the public after seven months of closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are absolutely thrilled!
Named the ‘Best overall Cultural Destination of the Year’ at the 2018 Leading Culture Destination Awards, as well as one of TIME Magazine’s Top 100 destinations, the Zeitz MOCAA Museum of Contemporary Art Africa is one of Cape Town’s most sought-after art and culture destinations for locals and tourists alike.
You better believe that they are living up to their top art and culture status with their grand reopening exhibition called Home Is Where The Art Is: Art Is Where The Home Is. Shifting the spotlight to Cape Town’s remarkable local talent, this exhibition is all about showcasing the incredible and inspiring work of ordinary Capetonians. It is a true and authentic testament and celebration of homegrown local talent, as a glorious diversity of art, submitted by people from all over Cape Town, is proudly put on display.
How exactly did this incredible celebration of local art come to be? In September 2020 Zeitz MOCAA called on all local artists, professional and amateur, to share their artistic pursuits and works of art that brought them the most joy during the COVID-19 pandemic. As it was an open call it meant artists from all walks of life were invited to submit their art. There were no costs involved in the submission process as well as no judging panel.
“The exhibition amplifies our commitment to taking access for all seriously. With no hierarchy or selection this is an opportunity for us to find out what art means to our audience and by the same token attempting to find out what a museum could stand for in current times”– Koyo Kouoh, Executive Director and Chief Curator at Zeitz MOCAA.
The re-opening exhibition of Home Is Where The Art Is: Art Is Where The Home Is features more than 1 600 artworks, including artwork by children, professional and amateur artists, collectors, and countless others from across the city of Cape Town.
To properly celebrate their re-opening and the local Cape Town spirit, all tickets purchased during the months of October and November will be valid for a total of three months and can be used for multiple visits.
