Level 2 Gallery: Meschac Gaba
Tate Modern: Exhibition
25 June 21 August 2005

The seventh in a series of eight-week displays by international contemporary artists has been undertaken by Meschac Gaba.

His works examine the cultural and economic codes of exchange between Africa and the West, through engaging visitors in an exchange of ideas.

The final form of Gaba’s installations are left open to be shaped by the desires and actions of those who visit. His previous works include the ten part installation The Museum of Contemporary African Art. Individual elements of this hypothetical institution were placed in other galleries and museums, such as The Architecture of the Museum where visitors built their fantasy museum using wooden blocks. In the Level 2 Gallery, Gaba has created an installation inspired by the Nobel Peace Prize.
