Museum of African Design

Museum of African DesignThe Museum of African Design (MOAD) launches this month in the previously neglected Maboneng precinct in Gauteng. Challenging both the traditional perceptions of what a museum should be, as well as what most people think of when they visualise ‘African design’, MOAD acts as a “multi-disciplinary exhibition and performance space with a core objective of advancing problem solving ideas for Africa and beyond”.

Southern Guild, the first official exhibition to take place at MOAD, provides a platform for showcasing the very best of South African design. The exhibition opens this Thursday, with curator-guided tours taking place over the next two Saturdays (26 October and 2 November, 11am-12 noon and 2-3pm).
