Zwelethu Mthethwa at The Studio Museum [MFA 1989]
Zwelethu Mthethwa: Inner Views
The first New York museum exhibition of South African photographer Zwelethu Mthethwa (b. 1960, Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa) brings together three compelling series: "Interiors" and "Empty Beds" document the domestic lives of migrant workers in and near Johannesburg, South Africa, while photographs in "Common Ground" focus on shared experiences of natural disaster in urban areas, featuring houses in post-Hurricane-Katrina New Orleans, Louisiana and on the outskirts of Cape Town, South Africa, after wildfires.
On July 15 at 7pm, Zwelethu Mthethwa and Naomi Beckwith will speak about the work in Inner Views in a special public program in the Museum Theatre, followed by a signing of Zwelethu Mthethwa, published by Aperture and available at the Museum Store.
