The South African photographer and self-described 'visual activist' Zanele Muholi has been gaining recognition across the globe since presenting her first exhibition, Visual Sexuality, in 2004 at the Johannesburg Art Gallery. Since then, Muholi's work has featured in numerous exhibitions including the 29th São Paulo Biennial in Brazil (2010); Figures and Fictions: Contemporary South African photography at the V&A Museum in London (2011) and Lesbians Seeing Lesbians at the Leslie/Lohman Gallery in New York (2011). In 2014, Muholi had two solo exhibitions, one at the EinsteinHaus in Ulm, Germany (18 September - 25 October) and the other at the Ryerson Image Centre in Toronto that coincided with WorldPride 2014 (18 June - 24 August). Furthermore, her work was featured in no less than six group exhibitions in 2014, including Where We're At!: Other Voices on Gender at the Bozar / Palais des Beaux Arts in Brussels (17 June - 31 August); Contemporary Art / South Africa at Yale University Art Gallery (9 May - 14 September); Worldwide Africa: Fashioning Personhood at Minneapolis Institute of Arts and From Sitting to Selfie: 300 Years of South African Portraits at the Standard Bank Gallery in Johannesburg (24 June - 6 September).
