Wangechi Mutu

– When

23 May-14 August 2013

– Admission

Wangechi Mutu has now finished.

Discover the diverse practice of Kenyan-born, Brooklyn–based artist Wangechi Mutu in this free major presentation at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia in Sydney featuring collage, drawing, sculpture, installation and video.

Be drawn into contemplations on beauty, colonialism, race and gender through Mutu’s sumptuous works. Mutu’s collages combine drawn elements and image fragments from a variety of media including fashion magazines and ethnographic journals, as well as representations of the female body in pornography.

Watch video works that poetically illustrate activities relating to women’s work and be captivated by Mutu’s storytelling power in the haunting blackthrones (2012), towering constructions made from chairs, plastic bags, ribbon, cassette tape and feathers.

Experience Mutu’s recent major installations, including the multi-sensory Exhuming Gluttony: Another Requiem (2006) displaying surfaces groaning with excess. Your immersion in other-worldly spaces continues with the lunar landscape Perhaps the Moon Will Save Us (2008) and Mountetas (2008), volcanic mounds rising from the gallery floor.

Don’t miss this thought-provoking and stimulating selection of recent and new artworks by this exciting international artist, shown for the first time in Australia.
