MINA/MEG- A Feminist, Artist and Activist Queer Exhibition

Art Fair Suomi in Helsinki, Finland 24 - 28 May 2017

Featuring Zanele Muholi, Ahmed Umar and Linn Cecilie Ulvin

“Mina” means “me” in Isizulu (South Africa) and "meg" in Norwegian. Through visual activism the artists are exploring self-representation and life-stories with the focus on love, intimacy, racism, homophobia, solidarity, visibility and interpretation of differences.

The exhibition presents works by Ahmed Umar (NO/SD), Zanele Muholi (SA) and Linn Cecilie Ulvin (NO) and is curated by Lerato Dumse (SA) and Henriette Stensdal (NO). The exhibition was first presented in Museum of Cultural History in Oslo, curated by Kunstplass [10] and was a contribution to Oslo Pride.

Muholi is an internationally acclaimed photographer and visual activist who over a decade has documented LGBT life in post-apartheid South Africa. Umar and Ulvin are both based in Norway and exhibit pieces that confront our perceptions of gender and sexual identity. Umar will also be involved in a self-representation workshop on 11-12 February.

Participation at AFS2017 has been made possible with support from OCA - Office for Contemporary Arts in Norway.

This exhibition was produced with support from Art Council Norway and Fritt Ord.
