Zeitz MOCAA Mobile Museum
The Zeitz MOCAA Mobile Museum(ZMMM) is driven by Zeitz MOCAA’s Centre for Art Education (CFAE) in collaboration with Kevin Kimwelle, a community architect, researcher and social innovator in sustainable development.
Visitors to the Investec Cape Town Art Fair (ICTAF) 2023 are invited to view a prototype of one of the Mobile Museum ‘typologies’ and contribute to the co-creation of the Mobile Museum. The installation is made from paper-tube cores, reminiscent of the concrete grain silos that are a distinctive feature of the Zeitz MOCAA museum building, and is a direct response to the green agenda. The scaffolding system symbolises the materiality of creating agile and flexible public spaces for creativity.
Booth I2, Investec Cape Town Art Fair, Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC)
Thursday, 16 February from 12 – 9 pm
Friday, 17 – Saturday, 18 February from 9 am – 7 pm
Sunday, 19 February from 11 am – 7 pm
The project is a direct result of a rigorous curatorial programme that identified an increased awareness of the reach and scope of current museum audiences. The Mobile Museum will endeavour to further the development of programmes beyond the physical confines of the museum building to bring art and art-making to underserved communities. The eventual physical manifestations of the Mobile Museum will enable conversations, dialogue, collaboration and creative production with groups and individuals using art from Africa and its diaspora as the catalyst for engagement, exchange and reciprocal learning.
The success and sustainability of the Mobile Museum will create greater access to local and pan-African audiences. It will further make possible ongoing conversations, consultations and collaboration with communities, organisations, the V&A Waterfront, local government, the City of Cape Town, the public and private sectors, and our generous funders.
