Meet Yasufumi Nakamori, Senior Curator of International Art (Photography) at Tate Modern in conversation with GL STRAND’s chief curator Anne Kielgast about his collaboration with Zanele Muholi and the making of the exhibition, which is the artist’s first major survey exhibition. The exhibition is curated by Tate Modern in collaboration with GL STRAND. Following the talk there will be a celebration of the opening of the exhibition. 

South African visual activist Zanele Muholi (b. 1972) 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 than 100 photographs are brought together at GL STRAND to present the full breath of Muholi’s career to date, from their very first body of work Only Half the Picture, to their on-going series Somnyama Ngonyama. These works challenge dominant ideologies and representations, presenting the participants in their photographs as fellow human beings being bravely existing in the face of prejudice, intolerance and often violence

Kurator Talk: Om at skabe udstillingen ”ZANELE MUHOLI”

Mød Yasufumi Nakamori, Senior Curator of International Art (Photography) ved Tate Modern i en samtale med GL STRANDs chefkurator Anne Kielgast om hans samarbejde med Zanele Muholi og tilblivelsen af udstillingen, der er den første store survey-udstilling over kunstnerens værk. Udstillingen åbner senere samme dag og er tilrettelagt af Tate Modern i samarbejde med GL STRAND. 

Den sydafrikanske visuelle aktivist Zanele Muholi (f. 1972) brød igennem i starten af 00’erne med fotografier, der dokumenterer sorte lesbiske, homoseksuelle mænd, biseksuelle, trans-, queer- og interseksuelles liv i Sydafrika. I dag står Zanele Muholi som en af den internationale kunstscenes mest betydningsfulde kunstnere og har udstillet over hele verden. Udstillingen i GL STRAND præsenterer hele Muholis karriere som visuel kunstner: Fra den første værkserie Only Half the Picture (2002-2006) til den igangværende serie af iscenesatte selvportrætter Somnyama Ngonyama (2012-). Muholis værker udfordrer dominerende stereotyper, repræsentationsformer og det heteronormative blik og viser mennesker, der på modig vis lever liv, hvor de bliver mødt med fordomme, intolerance og ofte vold – uden at skildre dem som ofre
