First Person Series:
Zanele Muholi

First Person Series: Zanele Muholi

First Person is an intimate video-based series by FNB Art Joburg where artists, curators and gallerists offer personal accounts of their platforms, practice, process, and projects. This week, we feature Sir/ Professor Zanele Muholi.

A visual activist working in the medium of documentary and performance photography, Muholi’s arresting portraits contribute towards South Africa having a democratic queer visual history. Looking to offset the stigma and negativity attached LGBTQ+ identities in African societies, they speak to us about their queer approach to archiving. Touching on rememory and performative photography as subversion, we learn why their relationship with portraiture remains ceaseless.

Construct Series

Construct Series

Institut Français Afrique du Sud (IFAS) and FNB Art Joburg are delighted to present CONSTRUCT: a series focused on woman artists working in Joburg across all mediums.

Just as “construct” may refer to the physical act of building or making, a construct can also refer to a concept; one formulated without empirical evidence that therefore does not necessarily reflect the lived reality. In this way the series explores both the identity and gender constructs female identifying artists navigate through their work as well as the physical practice of each artist.
