Zanele Muholi @ Autograph ABP

14 July 2017 - 28 October 2017

In her first solo exhibition in London, South African visual activist Zanele Muholi presents her ongoing self-portrait series Somnyama Ngonyama: hail the dark lioness.
In more than 60 photographs Muholi uses her body as a canvas to confront the politics of race and representation in the visual archive.
Taken primarily in Europe, North America and Africa, each portrait asks critical questions about social justice, human rights and contested representations of the black body. Muholi’s psychologically charged portraits are unapologetic in their directness as she explores different archetypes and personae, and offers personal reflections.
