Lower Jette Galleries

In the ongoing photographic project Somnyama Ngonyama—isiZulu for Hail the Dark Lioness—South African visual activist Zanele Muholi presents a visionary mosaic of identities, an exquisite empire of selves. This exhibition of more than seventy self-portraits from the series poses critical questions about social (in)justice, human rights, and contested representations of the Black body.

Zanele Muholi: Somnyama Ngonyama, Hail the Dark Lioness is organized by Autograph, London. Curated by Renée Mussai.
