Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa is the first major museum in Africa dedicated to contemporary art.
Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA) is a public not-for-profit cultural institution that focuses on collecting, preserving, researching, and exhibiting cutting edge contemporary art from Africa and its Diaspora. It is the first major museum in Africa dedicated to contemporary art. Zeitz MOCAA was established in 2013 through a partnership of the V&A Waterfront and Jochen Zeitz and is generously funded by Growthpoint Properties, Jochen Zeitz, Public Investment Corporation (PIC) acting on behalf of the Government Employees Pension Fund (GEPF), V&A Waterfront, and Zeitz Collection. The Zeitz Collection acts as the founding collection of the museum. Mark Coetzee is the Executive Director and Chief Curator of Zeitz MOCAA. Zeitz MOCAA is housed at the Zeitz MOCAA Pavilion by the Bascule Bridge, V&A Waterfront. In 2016, Zeitz MOCAA will open in the transformed heritage listed Silo building, repurposed through a design by Heatherwick Studio, in the Clock Tower/Silo District of the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town.
