'Reflections on the Self: Five African Women Photographers'

Zanele Muholi and Nontsikelelo Veleko at Southbank Centre

'Reflections on the Self' features five contemporary African women photographers whose work deals with women's narratives through self-portraits or portraits of others. The artists are Hélène Amouzou (Togo, Belgium), Majida Khattari (Morocco, France), Zanele Muholi (South Africa), Senayt Samuel (Eritrea, UK), and Nontsikelelo Veleko (South Africa). The exhibition, curated by Christine Eyene, focuses on female photographic practice in Africa and the diaspora, and examines the gaze of women photographers and how this is informed by the politics of representation. The title refers literally to the mirror image and also to photography as a means of thinking about the self, as both subject and object.

Organised by the Hayward Gallery to correspond with the 100th International Women's Day (08 March 2011), this exhibition will be shown in the Royal Festival Hall (Spirit Level) of the Southbank Centre.

08 March - 03 April
