Lizamore and Associates brings together three rising South African photography stars for a contemporary photography showcase challenging socio-political issues and black and brown-female identities. The showcase is made up of three concurrent solo exhibitions; Fly by Night by Justin Dingwall, No more clichés, please by Tsoku Maela and Serithi by Manyatsa Monyamane.
In No more clichés, please screenwriter and photographer Tsoku Maela confronts the clichés associated with the brown female figure, sharing the narratives of young brown women who chose to challenge the historical bias against them.
Mamelodi-born photographer Manyatsa Monyamane’s debut solo exhibition Serithi (meaning aura Sesotho) delves into the depiction of powerful black women. Using the Sesotho saying “Mme o, ona la serithi” (loosely translated to “This woman has a powerful aura”) as a starting point, Monyamane investigates the characteristics that make each of her subjects intensely unique.
Opening event Thu Mar 1 from 18:00.
