Zanele Muholi: Isibonelo/Evidence

The Zanele Muholi exhibit at the Brooklyn Musuem looked at the life of transgender women living in South Africa. The artist presented pictures and videos of weddings juxtaposed by portraits and written words of those who had been raped, assaulted, and killed because of their sexuality. It was very difficult for me - to see that this world is still so violent and dangerous for women. It was extremely powerful and caused me to cry for a while. Its a definite must see if you make it up to The Brooklyn Museum.
