Tonight's speaker, Wangechi Mutu, doesn’t actually take photographs, but she’s got a lot of ideas about what to do with them. The Kenyan-born, Kings County–based artist is known for large-scale collages that blend photos—often cut from glossy fashion magazines—with found objects, sculptural elements and painted imagery. She’s currently enjoying her first stateside survey at the Brooklyn Museum ("Wangechi Mutu: A Fantastic Journey," through Mar 9), so don’t miss the chance to both hear what she has to say about her work and see it for yourself.
