MOCAA Cape Town Opening Event.

Opening celebration with many different african designers…

I was wearing an Agatha Ruiz de la Prada Gala dress for that day. I thought was very appropriate for this event and I enjoyed a lot.

A major new cultural institution is being created in the historic Grain Silo at the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town. It is called Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA) in honour of the renowned Zeitz Collection, that will form the museum’s founding collection, and the support of Jochen Zeitz of the programming and acquisition funds.

That was a great day a beautiful Gala with very interesting people from Africa-South Africa and from all over the world.

Thank you Mark Semonian, Thank you Jochen Zeitz.

Jack Garfein – shearing a workshop with him.

Jack Garfein survived imprisonment at Auschwitz and came to the United States at the end of World War II. He was born in Mukacevo, Carpathian Ruthenia, Czechoslovakia, now Mukacheve, Ukraine. He is 84 years old and travels from Paris where he lives and also teaches to New York to do this workshops for students…like me…

I had the opportunity to be in one of his workshops in New York and it was fantastic he is still alive there is no age at all on him.

I had a good experience like life is not easy but you are walking everyday.

Depend of the area in South Africa is not good if you are in the country side to drive when the sun goes down , you are exposed to all type of danger it can be animal or some human risks . So it was a bit late and close to sundown we needed to cross the mountains to get to Prince Albert. We drove in a rented car almost alone through all the way that was really impressive thinking about what could us happened that night. finally we arrived in a good condition.

It was full of cosy places to stay and eat. We ate very ealthy food. Also you can find natural products handmade and local. They are very aware about the importance of health and natural staff for yourself and for the world we live in.
