Motormond presents the exhibition Brave Beauties in Communion: Imaging Black Queer Liberation. This exhibition brings together works by contemporary photographers Daniel Obasi, DeLovie Kwagala, Keren Lasme, Nella Ngingo, and Stephen Tayo in an effort to understand the image of black queer liberation through a self directed and self sustained lens.
Brave Beauties in Communion defines queerness as of transformation, of shapeshifting, of fluency, of form to deform; of code to switch, of mimicry, of flamboyance, of grace, of fluidity, and of bravery.
Critically, Brave Beauties in Communion brings major political geographies in fellowship around the issue of black queer liberation. Pitching from Abidjan, Lagos, Kampala, New York City and Amsterdam. We set the stage for a nuanced conversation on liberative imaging of black queer communities across Africa and its diasporas.
