Limited-edition prints to start your art collection!

This May, celebrate both International Museum Day and Africa Day with free entry, coffee and more, and start your own art collection by purchasing one of our limited-edition prints.

Celebrating museums and Africanicity

With International Museum Day and Africa Day taking place on 18 May and 25 May, respectively, Zeitz MOCAA will be extending free entry on these days from 10 am to 2 pm. The first 100 visitors to Ocular Lounge on level 6 will also receive a free cup of coffee.

To top it off, our amazing Centre for Art Education (CFAE) team will lead exciting activities for kids and adults alike beneath the track shed at the entrance to the museum.

Affordable art

Zeitz MOCAA’s exclusive prints by well-known African artists reflect the breadth and depth of art from Africa and its diaspora – and is a fitting gift as we near Africa Day on 25 May.

Auntie Adrian and Uncle Barbara (2017)

Reproduced on textured paper, this print captures the intricate details of the original drawing of the artist Tracey Rose’s Performa performance installation.

KASSARAM 1 and 2 (2022)

These digital prints are derived from artist Thania Petersen’s most recent film of the same title, which analyses strategies used in creating and perpetuating cultural divides amongst people of colour through art.

When We See Us: A Century of Black Figuration as Representation of Self
Tuesday, 31 May
6.30 pm SAST,  5.30 pm GMT
The series is free and will take place via Zoom. No registration is required.

With speakers Ashraf Jamal (South African author, academic and cultural analyst), Keyna Eleison (curator, researcher and Professor at Parque Lage School of Visual Arts in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) and Huey Copeland (BFC Presidential Associate Professor in History of Art at the University of Pennsylvania, United States).

Continuing Zeitz MOCAA’s collaboration with the Institute for Humanities in Africa (HUMA), University of Cape Town (UCT), this third session of the When We See Us webinar series asks how and why Black figuration offers a space for the projection of new vocabularies and shared imaginaries in the representation of the self. No registration required.

The When We See Us webinar series precedes a major exhibition of the same name, opening on 19 November 2022. The exhibition, along with its accompanying programming, of which the webinar series is part, will attempt to unveil the deeper historic contexts and networks of a complex and underrepresented genealogy that stems from African and Black modernities and spans several generations from the early 20th century to the present.
