Zwelethu Mthethwa: Inner Views brings together three series by South African photographer Zwelethu Mthethwa (b. 1960). “Interiors” and “Empty Beds” document the domestic lives of migrant workers around Johannesburg, South Africa, while “Common Ground” focuses on the shared experience of natural disasters in urban areas, featuring houses in New Orleans, Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina and on the outskirts of Cape Town, South Africa, after wildfires.

In this year’s installment of the much anticipated Artist-in-Residence exhibition, Mequitta Ahuja (b. 1976), Lauren D. Kelley (b. 1975) and Valerie Piraino (b. 1981) display diverse projects in a range of media, all visually addressing the construction of history and memory. Ahuja makes lush paintings in which mythological warriors and demigods move between landscape, self-portraiture and abstraction; Kelley crafts stop-motion animations and sculptural installations telling stories of material and emotional excess; Piraino repurposes family artifacts to create installations drawing attention to the frames that shape experience and memory.
