…that Monday is Memorial Day. MICA will be closed all Monday in observation of the holiday. Take a moment to reflect on what the holiday means, and the sacrifices made for the common good. We will be open normal hours during the weekend (8:30AM – 10:30PM).

Don’t miss Zanele Muholi’s Talk and Groundbreaking Exhibition at LOOK3!

“I’m one of us. I’m not observing from a distance. My photographs portray people who are participating in making their own history.”
—Zanele Muholi, The New Yorker

LOOK3 is thrilled to present Zanele Muholi’s Love, Life, and Loss as this year’s Free Speech Exhibition. Defining herself as a visual activist, Zanele Muholi has received international attention for her courageous work dedicated to increasing awareness around the LGBT community in South Africa.

“These photographs of weddings, funerals and individuals are an attempt to capture our visual history, while claiming our full citizenship.” (Zanele Muholi) The Free Speech exhibition, which addresses human rights and social justice issues, is strategically situated across from the Freedom of Speech Monument and chalkboard and next to the Charlottesville Transit Center at 615 Water Street East.

Zanele will give an artist’s talk at The Paramount Theater on Saturday, June 13 at4:00pm. This intimate talk will provide a rare opportunity to hear an acclaimed photographer speak candidly about her influences, processes, and inspiration. Following the talk, Zanele will hold a book signing at The Paramount Theater.
Love, Life, and Loss
will be on display from May 30th – June 30th.

Tickets for the Festival can be found at:
