|SYSTEMATICALLY OPEN?—New Forms for Contemporary Image Production|
Curated by Zanele Muholi (b. 1972; lives and works in Johannesburg)
Drawn from a Zulu phrase meaning "Hail, the Dark Lioness," Somnyama Ngonyama uses stylized self-portraiture as a means to commemorate, question, and celebrate the ways the black body has been represented in photography. Augmented with shells, textiles, and other objects, the artist's diverse coiffures explore hair as symbolic primary material and a central facet of African identity and stylistic expression. An acknowledgement of South Africa's political history and a series of activist networks operating today in the country and elsewhere, Muholi's project comments on aesthetic and cultural issues that affect black people, and specifically black women, in Africa and its diaspora.

Congratulations to Matthew Jensen on his 2016 Fellowship
Light and landscape combine as metaphor in numerous works by Jensen. In 2009 the Metropolitan Museum of Art acquired his photographic series The 49 States and exhibited it in After Photoshop: Manipulated Photography in the Digital Age (2012). The photographs were derived from months of exploring small towns in the early days of Google Streetview. The series is also in the collection of the National Gallery of Art where it was also exhibited (2016). Other works likeThe Sun Returning, 14 Hour Sunset and Rainbow Around the Sun were exhibited together at Yancey Richardson Gallery as part of Jensen's solo show Feels Like Real (2015).
