On the exhibition
Internationally acclaimed South African photographer and visual activist Zanele Muholi (they, them, their) came to prominence in the early 2000s with photographs that tells the stories of black lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and intersex lives in South Africa. In the exhibition at GL STRAND more than 100 photographs are brought together to present the full breadth of Muholi’s career to date, from their very first body of work Only Half the Picture, to their on-going series Somnyama Ngonyama (2012-). Emphasizing a conceptual and personal approach, the images and accompanying first-person testimonies from their participants challenge dominant ideologies and representation.
Exhibition is organized by Tate Modern in collaboration Kunstforeningen GL STRAND, Copenhagen and Bildmuseet at Umeå University. Curated by Anne Kielgast, Chief Curator, GL STRAND Yasufumi Nakamori, Senior Curator, International Art and Sarah Allen, Assistant Curator, Tate Modern, London
