Join us for a lively conversation between artist Zwelethu Mthethwa and Associate Curator Naomi Beckwith. They will discuss the current exhibition Zwelethu Mthethwa: Inner Views and various aspects of the artist’s work and practice, followed by a Q&A with the audience and book signing.

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.

The Artist’s Voice is FREE. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
