Featuring an ongoing series of self-portraits by Zanele Muholi, one of the most acclaimed artists working today, this exhibition is located outdoors in the University's East Quadrangle. Describing themself as a visual activist, Muholi has documented and celebrated the lives of South Africa’s Black lesbian, gay, trans, queer and intersex communities. In turning the camera on themself, Muholi’s aim is to ‘create visual archives that resist, affirm and bring forth the complex lives of those often made invisible within South African society, and beyond.’

A Belfast Photo Festival Touring Exhibition. Delivered by Belfast Photo Festival in partnership with Street Level Photoworks and The Hunterian, University of Glasgow.
