Abstract:This special issue of 'Agenda' arises from the exhibition intervention 'queer & trans Art-iculations' featuring Zanele Muholi's 'Mo(u)rning' and Gabrielle Le Roux's 'Proudly African & Transgender and Proudly Trans in Turkey' coordinated by the Wits Centre for Diversity Studies (29 January - 30 March 2014). A colloquium held alongside the exhibition, drew out the importance of art activism as a means to engage the need for locally situated knowledge and action around issues of sexual orientation and gender identity. Both Muholi's and Le Roux's art collections raise critical questions of how sexual and gender categories operate in relation to other socially constructed axes such as class, race and citizen status.
