To join the cultural events that celebrate Pride in the city of Valencia, IVAM offers a special guided visit of Zanele Muholi’s exhibition. The visit is planned as a tour of the homonymous exhibition of the South African artist emphasizing their struggle for the rights of the LGBTQIA+ community, as well as a closer look at some of their most iconic works.
Zanele Muholi (Umlazi, South Africa, 1972), artist and visual activist Muholi began their career doing work for LGBTQIA+ publications, portraying people from this undervalued community, always in a positive light. The aim was to introduce them into the collective imaginary of South African society to rewrite their visual history, dominated until then by an ethnocentric and heteropatriarchal ideology. This exhibition, organised by Tate Modern in collaboration with the Institut Valencià d’Art Modern, the Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris, and Gropius Bau, Berlin, is the most extensive to date with around 260 photographs. In 2016, Muholi received the Infinity Award from the International Center of Photography, and the Chevalier de Ordre des Arts et des Lettres and has been an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society since 2018.
