Wangechi Mutu write up

Mutu is a collage artist who works in Brooklyn New York and Nairobi. She Has a MFA in sculpture, and went to the Yale University School of Art in 2000. She has done both solo and group exhibitions. A recent solo exhibition she did was “Banana Stroke” (2017), and in 2018, she did a group exhibition, “Witness: Race and Identity in Contemporary American Printmaking.” Her art has been shown globally. Some galleries which she has been exhibited are; The San Fransisco Museum of Art, Tate Modern in London, Museum Kunstpalast in Germany, and the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University. On February 23, 2010, Mutu received an honor by Deutsche Bank as their first “Artist of the Year.” She was rewarded with a solo exhibition at the Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin. Her show was called “My Dirty Little Heaven.”

Her work explores the experiences of gender, race, and personal identity. She focuses on mostly black women in the contemporary world, that has to do with the violences and the misunderstandings of them. By getting inspiration from some artists such as Gustav Klimt, and Chris Ofili, as well as referencing art movements such as surrealism, her collages come together as images from ethnographical and medical texts, Vogue, and pornography.

“A lot of my work reflects the incredible influence that America has had on contemporary African culture. Some of it’s insidious, some of it’s innocuous, some of it’s invisible. It’s there.” -Wangechi Mutu

It is most common for her to work on paper or mylar. By finger painting with acrylics and other inks, and using materials such as beads, her work truly comes from her soul. Her work consists of sculpture, installations, video, and hybrid imagery.

There is a lot of inspiration I can take from this artist. By giving my piece a them of a current event, or something along those lines, and by making it by hand cutting and gluing, it will give the piece a lot of heart, and will make it very personal. Also, by using multiple mediums, such as paint and magazine clipping, I will be able to give the piece different textures throughout.

Here is a link to Wangechi Mutu’s website. Even her website is an art pice in itself. https://wangechimutu.com/history/

Gallery Exhibition

The exhibition that I went to see was the “Her Voice Carries” mural at the Memorial Art Gallery at the University of Rochester. The project is led by Sarah Rutherford, and features five women who work and live in Rochester. They have been interviewed, photographed and painted. The goal for this project, was to create a network and weave a story  filled with individual truths. These series of murals emphasizes the leadership of empowered women.

Standing infant of this mural was so empowering. The big detailed women with halos looking over me. What interests me most about this project, is why she chose to feature local women from Rochester, and why did they chose women as the subject?

The color pallet used in the mural works really well. With the soft cool and warm tones used with the sharp gold angles int the halo like circles, really makes the piece pop. Even thought there are three very different women in the same piece, they all have a harmony that brings them together.

I would definitely recommend seeing this mural to someone. I would recommend the WILD women club on campus to see it, because I think it’s super empowering to women. To see and learn about local leaders.

Something that I will remember about this exhibition, is that local women from Rochester were featured. In my opinion, I think if more well known people were used for this project, it would give a different meaning, and maybe would’t mean as much.
