Art at The Silo Hotel
Meticulously selected by the owner of The Royal Portfolio and avid art enthusiast Liz Biden, The Silo Hotel houses some of Africa’s most talented, emerging, and eminent contemporary artists.
Zeitz Museum Of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA), situated below The Silo Hotel opened its doors in September 2017. The museum joins the likes of the Tate Modern in London, MoMA in New York, and Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid as a key destination attraction for locals and international visitors alike.
During her trips throughout Africa, aided by her well-travelled eye for the exquisite and the unusual, Liz Biden has acquired a unique and varied collection of art that complements that of Zeitz MOCAA. Highlighting both young, aspiring artists, as well as established, highly acclaimed artists such as Cyrus Kabiru, Mahau Modisakeng and Nandipha Mntambo, the art has been specifically chosen to complement the unique interiors of each of the 28 rooms, offering individualised experiences for guests and many a reason to return.
Liz Biden explains:
“I have always included wonderful art at each of The Royal Portfolio properties. Art brings a space to life, it creates warmth and tells stories. But moreover, art takes you on a journey which evolves as we evolve. Our guests love to enjoy the art collection at our properties. The Silo will take that art experience to a whole new level with a focus on contemporary African art…”
