Newly minted Cummer Museum and Gardens director Andrea Barnwell Brownlee received high marks and national press when she secured the much talked about exhibition of more than 80 self portraits created by South African activist Zanele Muholi: Somnyama Ngonyama, Hail The Dark Lioness. Muholi’s work confronts issues of (in)justice, human rights, and contested representations of the Black body through their black and white self-portraiture. The show opened on April 15 at the Cummer, making its last US stop before heading to the Tate Modern in London. That’s good company. 

And speaking of good company: Standout local photographer Malcolm Jackson is also exhibiting work at the Cummer. Jackson’s installation, a collection of portraits taken in and around Jacksonville titled Across the Bridge, opened on Friday, April 16.
