MOSI O TUNYA

"The Smoke That Thunders"

Located in Holland Park, London, the Mosi O Tunya Gallery showcases bold and colourful works by artists from Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mozambique and South Africa.

AN ART GALLERY

WITH A PURPOSE

A SPACE TO

EXHIBIT

Founded by the Wulfsohn family, the Gallery’s purpose is to exhibit, champion and benefit artists from across Africa.

The smoke that thunders” is the African tribal name for the Victoria Falls on the Zambezi River, the boundary between Zambia and Zimbabwe from where most of the permanent collection comes and where the Wulfsohn family lived.

As well as exhibiting pieces from the Wulfsohn Collection, the Gallery also works with African gallerists to present the work of emerging African artists to a London audience.

PERMANENT COLLECTION

The Wulfsohn Collection of pan-African Art

Selected works by artists from Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mozambique and South Africa

Many of the Zimbabwe artists were trained under the auspices of the National Gallery of Zimbabwe. Others from Zambia were supported by the Lechwe Trust founded by Cynthia Zukas.

By appointment only.
