Flags are a primary theme in the work of Gaba, who began producing them in the later 1990s, using them to explore the concepts of cultural identity, political boundaries, and African unity. Meschac Gaba rose in notoriety after creating Le Musée d'Art Africain (1997-2001), which was later concluded at Documenta XI, Kassel. Gaba was included in the Dutch Pavilion at the Venice Biennale (2003) and has had solo exhibitions at numerous international museums including Tate Modern in 2013.
Meschac Gaba has also been part of numerous group shows which include those at Vitra Design Museum, Foundation De 11 Lijnen, Museo Tamayo, CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, Museum of Contemporary Art in Detroit, the Benin Biennale (2012); La Triennale at Palais de Tokyo, ZKM Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe, the 2010 Liverpool Biennale; Greenland Street Gallery, and, in 2006, the São Paolo, Gwangju, Sydney and Havana biennales.
