Lynette Yiadom-Boakye

Tate Britain, Millbank, London SW1P 4RG: London, United Kingdom

November 18, 2020 - May 31, 2021 Exhibition November 18, 2020 May 31, 2021 Europe/London Lynette Yiadom-Boakye Tate Britain, Millbank, London SW1P 4RG: London, United Kingdom

The first major survey of the celebrated London-based painter. Widely considered to be one of the most important painters of her generation, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye is a British artist and writer acclaimed for her enigmatic portraits of fictitious people. Her paintings often allude to historic European portraiture – notably Francisco de Goya, John Singer Sargent and Édouard Manet – yet in subject matter and technique, her approach is decidedly contemporary. Through her focus on the depiction of imagined black characters, Yiadom-Boakye’s paintings raise important questions of identity and representation. This exhibition will bring together over 80 paintings and works on paper from 2003 to the present day in the most extensive survey of the artist’s career to date.


Zanele Muholi

Tate Modern, Bankside, SE1 9TG: London, United Kingdom

November 05, 2020 - May 31, 2021 Exhibition November 05, 2020 May 31, 2021 Europe/London Zanele Muholi Tate Modern, Bankside, SE1 9TG: London, United Kingdom

Tate Modern presents the first major mid-career survey of visual activist Zanele Muholi in the UK. Born in South Africa, Muholi came to prominence in the early 2000s with photographs that sought to envision black lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and intersex lives beyond deviance or victimhood. Muholi’s work challenges hetero-patriarchal ideologies and representations, presenting the participants in their photographs as confident and beautiful individuals bravely existing in the face of prejudice, intolerance and, frequently, violence. While Muholi’s intimate photographs of others launched their international career, their intense self-portraits solidified it. This exhibition will present the full breadth of Muholi’s photographic and activist practice.
