Our honoree at #AmrefArtBall2019 is @muholizanele who we admire and celebrate for the courage and resolve they exhibit in their work which showcases South Africa’s LGBTQI+ community. ⁣ ⁣ “This is to say, ‘I am one of us,’ ” Muholi stated. “I’m not just taking photos for fine arts—I’m producing content that speaks to South African visual history and a group of people who, simply because of how they express themselves, won’t be counted in history. That includes me, so I’m working on content that’s produced by us for us about us—not dependent on other so-called experts.” - Art News ⁣ ⁣ Early bird tickets end on 2.27.
