After an ambitious four-year development project, the world’s largest museum of contemporary African art is now open in Cape Town. The not-for-profit Zeitz, on the burgeoning V&A Waterfront, dedicates 6,5000sq m across nine floors and 100 galleries to exhibition space. Opening exhibitors include Edson Chagas, Samson Kambalu, Yinka Shonibare and Nicholas Hlobo, all placed alongside the founding, and permanent, (philanthropist Jochen) Zeitz Collection. The museum is housed in a dramatic former grain silo (it also contains The Silo hotel) – this reimagining of space came from a collaboration between the waterfront, London-based Heatherwick Studio, and the Zeitz Foundation.
