Zanele Muholi at Tate Modern

From 5 November 2020 to 7 March 2021, Tate Modern will present the first major UK exhibition of South African artist and activist Zanele Muholi.

Exhibited around the world including at the prestigious dOCUMENTA (13), in Kassel, Germany, the artist came to prominence in the early 2000s with photographs that told the stories of black lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and intersex lives in South Africa.

More 250 works will be featured in the exhibition to present the full breadth of Muholi’s oeuvre to date, from their very first body of work Only Half the Picture, to their on-going series Somnyama Ngonyama.

These photographs challenge dominant ideologies and representations, documenting concepts of love, loss, intolerance and political violence.
