South African Consul-General Jeanette T. Ndhlovu, as part of South Africa’s National Human Rights Month and Deconstructing Apartheid: The Photography of Peter Magubane, conveys courageous women’s efforts to combat apartheid, followed by a Q&A, short film and light repast hosted by the South African Consulate, Los Angeles.
Peter Magubane, internationally recognized photojournalist, is a social realist, who through his camera documented the plight of minorities in South Africa and the egregious practices of apartheid. His images, bought at great personal cost, spotlighted the government’s callous implementation of its punitive racial policies and eventually were instrumental in turning international indifference to concern and opposition. 84 photographs and artifacts document Magubane’s examination of the development and implementation of government sanctioned injustice in South Africa. The exhibition’s focus is on Magubane’s life, dramatic instances of daily life under apartheid and the South African Black Power Movement. The exhibition culminates in its documentation of the indigenous cultures of rural South Africa, preserving and recording their arts and crafts, ceremonies, rites of passage and religious practices as social, economic and political changes transform the nation.
