Zanele Muholi at FRED London Ltd

This solo by Zanele Muholi titled ‘Faces and Phases’, shows a selection of photographs from Muholi”s ongoing series by the same name. The black and white portraits focus on the commemoration and celebration of black lesbians' lives, and challenges societal ideas around gender and sexuality.

As Zanele Muholi articulates, the photographic portrait series of 'Faces and Phases' is:

'...an insider's perspective that both commemorates and celebrates the lives of the black queers I have met in my journeys. Some of their stories gave me sleepless nights as I tried to process the struggles that were told to me. Many of the women I met had been violated and I endeavoured not to exploit them further through my work. I set out to establish relationships with them based on a mutual understanding of what it means to be female, lesbian and black today. "Faces and Phases" is about our histories and the struggles that we continue to face.'

Unknown Artist at FRED London Ltd

Through craft, performance, video, sculpture, and photography, Athi-Patra Ruga explores ideas of displacement, dislocation, misidentification and misconceptions in relation to race, gender, and sexuality. Political concerns are the heart of his practice as well as the balance of power or struggle between the artist, subject, and viewer. The exhibition explores the boundaries between fashion, performance and photography – as well as notions of masculinity, taste, acceptance, convention, and the status quo. 'The Works' comprises new tapestries and a selection of recent photographs and is Ruga’s first solo show in Europe.
