Tour led by:
Githan Coopoo (South Africa), AKO Foundation Assistant Curator of Costume, Costume Institute (Zeitz MOCAA).
Each day Zeitz MOCAA offers a short, 15-minutes tour of one object or one artist. This tour is designed for individuals who wish to gain an in-depth knowledge of contemporary art through regular short visits during their lunch break.
Today’s tour will focus on the sculptural work Proposed Model for Tseko Simon Nkoli Memorial (2017) by South African artist, Athi-Patra Ruga. In this tour we will use this work as a springboard to open up discussions about memorialisation and who we choose as a society to remember in the public realm.
Please note this will be a training tour and young curators will join the tour as part of their training.
Meet in the Grand Hall area, near the reception desk.
