Event Details:

Sabelo Mlangeni is a South African photographer who cultivates intimacy and community in his process and work. This sense of familiarity coincides with a feeling of distance, however, in images that refuse to present everything in sharp focus and clear detail. Imvuselelo: The revival includes photographs of some of the 15-18 million members of the African Zionism movement, a Christian practice, unrelated to Jewish nationalism, which centers healing.

This exhibition is organized by the Cantor Arts Center. It is presented in concert with the colloquium Curating the Image: African Photography and the Politics of Exhibitions, instructed by Joel Marie Cabrita, Associate Professor of History and, by courtesy, of Religious Studies and Susan Ford Dorsey Director, Center for African Studies, Stanford University. We gratefully acknowledge support from The C. Diane Christensen Fund for African Art.
