The evening will kick off with an artist talk featuring Zanele Muholi in dialogue with Michelle Coffey (Executive Director of the Lambent Foundation) and local artists from the Women’s Mobile Museum, and will be followed immediately by the exhibition’s opening reception.

Moore’s Socially-Engaged Art MA/MFA program has worked with Leeway and the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center (PPAC) to present this dialogue with acclaimed South African photographer Zanele Muholi, who has developed a new project with PPAC and 10 local artists that make up The Women’s Mobile Museum.
