This event has ended.

Yancey Richardson Gallery presents Awe Maaah!, an exhibition of new paintings and photographs by South African artist and visual activist Zanele Muholi. Internationally acclaimed as a photographer, this is the first large-scale exhibition of Muholi’s paintings and the artist’s fourth solo show with the gallery. The exhibition brings together seven self-portraits carried out as acrylic on canvas paintings, redolent with the artist’s exploration of gender and the isolation, intimacy, and confinement brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. Alongside these will be a presentation of new photographs from Somnyama Ngonyama, ‘Hail the Dark Lioness,’ (2012-present), Muholi’s ongoing series of photographic self-portraits.
