#Press_Release: MOMENTS FROM THE RED CARPET AT INAUGURAL ZEITZ MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART AFRICA GALA


The inaugural Zeitz MOCAA Gala, held on Saturday, 28 February 2015, was a glamorously African affair that saw 320 guests make their red-carpet arrival in show-stopping style. The Gala took place at the Silo 1 building in the Silo District of Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront, opposite the site of Zeitz MOCAA, the continent’s first contemporary art museum, which opens early 2017.

The Gala was held to honour the major donors to this significant new cultural institution, while proceeds from the high-profile fundraiser, which will become an annual event, will help to ensure the museum is accessible to all.















Guests, who were drawn from the arts, fashion, entertainment and business professions, were treated to a formal seated dinner and vibrant entertainment.

They showed off their black tie finery amid an exclusive exhibition of couture presented by the first four designers to be honoured by the newly announced Zeitz MOCAA Costume Institute: Chris Levin, Marianne Fassler, Gavin Rajah and Thula Sindi.


The Gala’s theme was Contemporary Africa, Future Africa, in recognition of Zeitz MOCAA being a project dedicated to the whole of Africa and its Diaspora.
