New Art Exchange

Join us as we launch this exhibition of work by South African visual activist Zanele Muholi.

In over 75 photographs Muholi uses their body as a canvas to confront the politics of race and representation in the visual archive, presenting critical questions about social justice, human rights and contested representations of the black body. The event will include speeches, DJ and a complimentary drink on arrival.
