Zanele Muholi: Somnyama Ngonyama, Hail The Dark Lioness
ATLANTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES • Spelman College Museum of Fine Art • 14 September - 8 December 2018
Spelman College Museum of Fine Art is presenting the United States premiere of Zanele Muholi: Somnyama Ngonyama, Hail The Dark Lioness, an internationally touring exhibition organized by Autograph, London and curated by Renée Mussai. In more than 70 photographs, visual activist Zanele Muholi (South African, b. 1972), whose pronouns are they, them, and their, uses their body as a canvas to confront the politics of race and representation in the visual archive. In Somnyama Ngonyama, which translates to Hail The Dark Lioness in isiZulu, one of the official languages of South Africa, Muholi playfully employs the conventions of classical painting, fashion photography, and the familiar tropes of ethnographic imagery to rearticulate contemporary identity politics.
