SFMOMA Presents: Zanele Muholi

Spend an evening uncovering the unique perspective of South African photographer and self-described “visual activist” Zanele Muholi, whose work is featured in the SFMOMA On the Go exhibition Public Intimacy: Art and Other Ordinary Acts in South Africa, opening at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts on February 21.

Dedicated to addressing social injustice, particularly issues of race, gender, and sexuality, Muholi is best known for her photographic series Faces and Phases, which portrays black members of the LGBTI community in South Africa and around the world. She will be joined by Dominic Willsdon, Leanne and George Roberts Curator of Education and Public Programs at SFMOMA, for a conversation on documentation, bearing witness, and larger issues within the LBGTI community.
