In what ways have artists from the African continent and its far-flung diaspora processed the experience of the quotidian in their painting over the last 100 years? Koyo Kouoh, Director and Chief Curator of the Zeitz MOCAA in Cape Town, South Africa, and her team undertook extensive research to find out. The result is a comprehensive show that brings together works by 156 artists—a kaleidoscope of Black figurative painting over the last 100 years. Zeitz MOCAA has created a groundbreaking exhibition that demands to be seen and will now be shown at the Kunstmuseum Basel | Gegenwart.
On this afternoon, there will be an English-language tour of the exhibit.
Cost is CHF 5 plus admission to the museum.
