Queer Africa @ South London Gallery

2 Comments

As part of the Contemporary Africa on Screen season, South London Gallery presents an evening event about ‘queer Africa’, curated by Jennifer Bajorek (Goldsmiths) and introduced by Natasha Bissonauth (Cornell University).

Photographer Andrew Esiebo’s work featured as part of the Nigerians Behind the Lens photography show at Bonhams this spring, but here the focus is on his multimedia work Living Queer African (Paris, 2007), which explores the lives of young queer Africans in Europe. Esiebo shares the spotlight with visual activist Zanele Muholi and her documentary Difficult Love (South Africa, 2010); anybody who’s seen Muholi’s photographic portrayals of the black lesbian community in South Africa (recently on view at the V&A and the Southbank Centre) will agree that her powerful work is well worth checking out.
