MOCAA ART CLUB (M A C) 2023
The MOCAA Art Club (M A C) wraps up for the year at the end of October, culminating in an Exhibition titled Site, Through the Eyes of a Dozen, which opens on Sunday, 29 October 2023 at the back of the Scheryn Arena on level 0 of Zeitz MOCAA. M A C is an art club for teenagers in grades 9 to 11 that come from different schools and areas in Cape Town, joined together by their desire to learn about, discuss, and create art. The intention of the club is to develop art literacy, criticality and to build social cohesion.
This year’s cohort of 12 kicked off in March. The members have come to the museum twice a month since for 13 sessions, starting with an Orientation Day, and ending with the Exhibition Opening.
The members have engaged in a variety of art projects ranging from textile to photography, and paper-based work to painting, all inspired and in response to the different exhibitions and artists that have shown in the museum this year.
Meet the 12 teenagers in grades 9 to 11 that come from different schools and areas in Cape Town, with diverse backgrounds.
