WOZA at Home
Learn to make a tapestry, talk art, and dance with Zeitz MOCAA at WOZA at Home

Make art, hear insights on an African artist, and go on a musical journey with Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa’s (MOCAA) last online edition of WOZA at Home on 3 October.

October’s event is free and takes place on the museum’s YouTube channel from 4pm (GMT+2). WOZA at Home re-works the museum’s pre-lockdown late night openings that featured live music, art sessions on the rooftop, and scavenger hunts in the galleries.

  • Make your own wall hanging

Kick off the evening with Zeitz MOCAA’s educators, Liesl Hartman, Mandisa Ngqulana and Richard Kilpert as they guide you through making a paper tapestry. The session is inspired by artist El Anatsui whose vast tapestries made from bottle caps, driftwood and other recycled materials have garnered him global acclaim.

  • The art of Abouldaye Konaté

Next up, the museum’s Gallery Guide Siseko Maweyi, along with Project Coordinator, Sakhisizwe Gcina, sit down for a discussion on the art of Abouldaye Konaté, known for his expansive, brightly coloured material wall-hangings.

  • Soothe the soul with jazz

Maya Spector, a singer and musicals’ veteran, will then soothe the soul with her jazzy music style. Spector has performed alongside puppeteer and creator of The Muppets Jim Henson, and US actress and singer, Phylicia Rashad.

  • Get into the groove

Finish the evening with a dance as DJ QUEEZY takes to the decks. Prepare for an audiovisual experience with QUEEZY who brings a vibrant, colourful style to the museum’s BMW Atrium.

This multidisciplinary artist has dedicated this set to Kirvan Fortuin, a dancer, choreographer, and LGBT activist who lost his life in June this year.

WHAT & WHEN: This month’s WOZA at Home is Zeitz MOCAA’s final edition of the online event before the museum reopens on 22 October.
