Ellerman House & Segera Retreat are celebrating the opening of the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa in 2017 with an unforgettable promotion of Art in Africa.

The Zeitz MOCAA in Cape Town will open in September 2017 – a cutting-edge contemporary art museum designed by internationally acclaimed architect Thomas Heatherwick. Zeitz MOCAA’s unique architectural redevelopment of the V&A Waterfront’s iconic Grain Silo is set to become a major non-profit cultural institution, housing one of the world’s most significant collections of contemporary art from Africa and its diaspora.
