An overview of the work on show at the Zeitz MOCAA at the V&A Waterfront

All the exhibitions currently on show at Zeitz MOCAA

You could spend a whole day just marveling at the artwork on display across six floors in the new Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA) at the V&A Waterfront. Below we’ve ordered the exhibitions according to their opening and closing dates, to help you plan your visits.

Wounded Negatives | Samson Kambalu (Malawi)

Centre for the Moving Image, 22 September – 29 November 2017
Kambalu’s solo presentation of work reflects on the role of film as a carrier of memory and a way to share information. This exhibition deals with issues of migration and displacement, and how it is no longer an exception but a universal norm.

Nice to know: The Centre for the Moving Image is different to the other gallery spaces at the museum as the original shape of the grain silos has been maintained.

OFF-THE-AIR by Mouna Karray (Tunisia)

15 September 2017 – 15 January 2018
It’s at the Roger Ballen Foundation Centre for Photography, which will function as a research center and exhibition space for contemporary photography. It will host photography from around the world. There will also be educational programmes and lectures.

Harvest by Michele Mathison (South Africa/Zimbabwe)

22 September 2017 – 15 January 2018
Repeat installations that the artists created for the Dudziro Exhibition at the Zimbabwe Pavilion at the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013. 

Material Value by Nandipha Mntambo (Swaziland)

22 September 2017 – 27 January 2018
This is a beautiful solo exhibition; a retrospective of Mntambo’s early work using cowhide. It’s a generous and varied collection that will have you entranced.

All Things Being Equal by Various Artists (from across the continent and diaspora)

15 September 2017 - 19 February 2018
This exhibition has input from various artists across Africa, including great names like Kenya’s Wangechi Mutu, Cape Town’s Thania Paulsen’s portraits, Athi-Patra Ruga and William Kentridge.

Nice To Know: William Kentridge’s rousing visual installation has been gifted to the museum and is part of its permanent collection.

Regarding the Ease of Others by Kudzanai Chiurai (Zimbabwe)

15 September 2017 – 31 March 2018
Chiurai is a prominent political voice in art and this exhibition is a rich mix-media collection of paintings, photographs and sculptures “that explores how symbols of heroic African male figures can be challenged in a postcolonial world”.

Addio del Passato by Yinka Shonibare MBE (British Nigerian) 

22 September 2017 – 28 May 2018
Shonibare’s work explores colonialism and postcolonialism. Addio del Passato is the story about Lord Nelson’s lover in the form of an endurance performance. “The sound of opera can be heard throughout the Dusthouse 24 hours a day…”

Nice to know: Yinka Shonibare who lives and works in London received the decoration of the “Most Excellent Order of the British Empire” in 2004.

Now and Then by El Loko (Togo) and Kyle Morland (South Africa)

15 September 2017 – 27 August 2018
This exhibition space at the rooftop garden is open to the elements. The floor of the space is also the ceiling of the atrium and the exhibition space. As well as parts of the ceiling (which you stand on) are glass discs that form part of Loko’s work. Kyle Morland’s metal sculptures stand guard throughout the area.

Nice to know: Loko’s glass discs were specially commissioned for the museum.

Luanda, Encyclopedic City by Edson Chagas (Angola)

22 September 2017 – 13 January 2018
This exhibit features 23 stacks of 5000 mass produced images from the artist’s photographic series Found Not Taken (2009 – 2013), which has not been exhibited since it won the Golden Lion Award at the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013. 

Nice to Know: You can pick up and take home any number of the prints on the stacks. In other words, you can have a collection of the artists prints for free.

Impundulu Zonke Ziyandilandela by Nicholas Hlobo (South Africa)

15 September 2017 – 30 July 2018
This dragon-like feature hangs imposingly at the centre of the museum in the BMW Atrium. This seminal object, originally created in 2011, uses rubber inner tubing, multi-coloured ribbons, an animal skull and pink theatre lights. The piece represents the Xhosa myth of the Lightning Bird.

LGBTQI+ by Zanele Muholi (South Africa)

22 September 2017 – 25 June 2018
