Third year students at the ZEITZ MOCAA
A group of students registered for 2019_2_CART164 recently went on an excursion to the ZEITZ Museum of Contemporary African Art in the Silo District at the Cape Town Waterfront. They were very fortunate to study, for the Visual Literacy section of their course, a retrospective exhibition of the work of William Kentridge, called Why Should I Hesitate: Putting Drawings to Work. This is a major exhibition by an internationally acclaimed artist. The exhibition is the largest exhibition held in Africa in over a decade and is hosted simultaneously in two parts, alongside Norval Foundation‘s Why Should I Hesitate: Sculpture.

Students could view a wide survey of Kentridge’s work, including early works, as well as newer pieces on view for the first time in South Africa. It will cover over 40 years of artistic production (1976 – 2019) in drawing, stop-frame animation, video, prints, sculpture, tapestry, and large-scale installation.
 
On show was also the work of Nobukho Ngaba from South Africa and an impressive piece hanging in the cathedral-like foyer by El Anatsui from Ghana.
 
The students first visited the Art Education Centre in the basement were they received some valuable information. A guided tour of the gallery by an expert museum guide opened their eyes and ears to this impressive exhibition space and the work exhibited.
