Kiss My Genders explores at the root of what it means to be human today. The cross-cultural group exhibition engages with and articulates gender fluidity, trans rights and both non-binary and intersex identities. Works from Kent Monkma and Juliana Huxtable examine the societal attitudes toward gender, and the ongoing strives toward greater inclusivity, over the past half decade.

The photographed portraits of Martine Gutierrez almost shimmer in technicolor, displaying a subject for whom gender is intertwined with a wider sense of identity and belonging. With the inclusion of Zanele Muholi (pictured), the South African artist challenges hetero-patriarchal ideologies and its modern day manifestations.

Kiss My Genders is open at Southbank Centre, London. Find out more here.
