Meschac Gaba: Museum of Contemporary African Art This immersive twelve-room installation by Benin artist Meschac Gaba at Tate Modern questions the nature of the museum and perceptions of African art. Constructed over a five year period, Museum of Contemporary African Art invites visitors to see and interact with a vast array of objects and environments. This free exhibition will be the first time the installation - recently purchased by the Tate - has been shown in its entirety in the UK.
