Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA) announced a line-up of programming to be held at the museum during Investec Cape Town Art Fair.

From Tuesday 13 February 2018 to Sunday 18 February 2018, visitors to the Art Fair can enjoy diverse programming at Zeitz MOCAA, including a VIP preview of the new exhibition Penny Siopis, This is a True Story: Six Films (1997-2017). This exhibition opens to the public on Friday 16 February.

Penny Siopis, This is a True Story: Six Films (1997-2017) at Zeitz MOCAA

Penny Siopis, This is a True Story: Six Films (1997-2017) is a retrospective of twenty
years of film-making by the artist and includes the Africa premiere of Welcome Visitors!,
originally commissioned for Prospect 4 New Orleans 2017.

The films included in the exhibition make use of found 8 mm and 16 mm footage,
drawing from official documents, newspaper clippings and personalised accounts of
history to create an overlooked historiography. The exhibition evokes ideas of truth as a
merging of experience, fact, fiction, imagination and the fragility of memory.
