Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Although she employs a number of artistic mediums, Wangechi Mutu—a Kenya transplant to Brooklyn via Yale—is best-known for large-scale collages on Mylar, depicting chimerical female figures that are part plant, part animal and part human. Created from bits and pieces of fashion, lifestyle, automotive and pornographic magazines, these works and others have earned Mutu a sizable international reputation during the past two decades, and evince a flamboyant aesthetic informed by topics such as feminism, globalism and multiculturalism. This show is her first mid-career survey in the U.S., and covers her work from the mid-1990s to the present.
