Tate Modern presents the first major mid-career survey of visual activist Zanele Muholi in the UK
Born in South Africa, Muholi came to prominence in the early 2000’s with photographs that sought to envision black lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and intersex lives beyond deviance or victimhood.
Muholi’s work challenges hetero-patriarchal ideologies and representations, presenting the participants in their photographs as confident and beautiful individuals bravely existing in the face of prejudice, intolerance and, frequently, violence.
While Muholi’s intimate photographs of others launched their international career, their intense self-portraits solidified it. This exhibition will present the full breadth of Muholi’s photographic and activist practice.
The exhibition runs from 29th April 2020 – 18th October 2020.
