Cape Town’s Zeitz Museum, when it opened in 2017, was Africa’s largest contemporary art space. Three years on, has there been the hoped-for growth in opportunities for art in Africa? Art fairs and galleries are reportedly healthy, the market is becoming “more professional” and African art is more visible internationally. Whether Cape Town is the continent’s “art hub” perhaps stretches what otherwise seems well-placed optimism.
