MOCA North Miami: Wangechi Mutu: A Fantasic Journey

April 18 through July 6, 2014

The ground-breaking work of Kenyan-born, New York based-artist Wangechi Mutu combines poetic symbolism with profound sociopolitical critique to explore issues of gender, race and war. With over 50 works from the mid-1990s to the present, this first major solo museum exhibition for Mutu includes her collages, drawings, installations, sculptures, performances and videos. Combining found materials and magazine cutouts with sculpture and painted imagery, Mutu’s work references African traditions, international politics, the fashion industry and science fiction.

“Wangechi Mutu: A Fantastic Journey” has been organized and curated by Trevor Schoonmaker, Chief Curator and Patsy R. and Raymond D. Nasher Curator of Contemporary Art, Nasher Museum of Art, Duke University, Durham, North Carolina.

Opening Reception: April 17,  2014
