Written by 

 

 

The Brooklyn Museum has, until November 8, 2015, an exhibition on the photographer, journalist and activist Zanele Muholi.

In a country that legalized protection laws for LGBT people, but that mocks violence, rape and murder suffered by these people, Muholi's photos, videos and other installations have only one purpose: to bring visibility to the black LGBTI community of South Africa.

Thus the «Zanele Muholi: Isibonelo/Evidence» exhibition consists of 87 pieces which were created between 2007 and 2014, including "Faces and Phases" and "Weddings" which are two of the most important Muholi's series that highlight gender diversity and celebrate love in our community.

Another exhibition on Muholi's art is also underway in Liverpool until November 29. For more information on upcoming shows, visit this site: http://www.stevenson.info/artists/muholi.html
