Wangechi Mutu: A Fantastic Journeyis on view March 21- July 21, 2013 at the Nasher Museum. The exhibit will travel to the Brooklyn Museum of Art in September 2013, the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami in April 2014 and the Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art at Northwestern University in September 2014.  

Curated by Trevor Schoonmaker, Patsy R. and Raymond D. Nasher Curator of Contemporary Art at the Nasher Museum, this is the first survey of Mutu’s work in the United States, and the most comprehensive and experimental show to date for this internationally-renowned multidisciplinary artist. Approximately 34 works spanning from the mid 1990s to the present, the exhibition will incorporate all aspects of her current practice including collage, drawing, installation, sculpture, performance, video, as well as the unveiling of a new body of collages and her never-before-seen sketchbooks.

Throughout the exhibit there will be a series of events including the opportunity to meet Mutu during the Exhibition Preview and Artist Talk on Wednesday, March 20, 7 PM. You can also screen the The Triptych (which features Mutu and her work) on Thursday, May 2, 7 PM. More about the film in this post from the archives. View a list of other events happening in conjunction with the exhibit here and stay tuned for Mutu’s first ever animated video in collaboration with musician Santigold.  You can watch Mutu on African Voices and learn more about her work in this post from the archives.
