Contemporary Female Identities in the Global South is the first exhibition in a three-year curatorial programme with a thematic focus aimed at mapping out a generational genealogy of female identities within the Global South.

Each iteration establishes temporal layers surrounding an in-depth focus on female identities, told from the perspective of specific artists. The inaugural show includes artwork by Nandipha Mntambo (South Africa), Bharti Kher (India, UK), WangechiMutu (Kenya, USA), Shirin Neshat (Iran, USA) and Berni Searle (South Africa) from varying points in their careers. Tracing this lineage from the contemporary, the show initiates a narrative articulation guided by hybridity, as a lens for exploring identity construction and interrogation; an entry point established by the artworks present in the show.
