ONE MORE WEEK! WANGECHI MUTU: A FANTASTIC JOURNEY AT BROOKLYN MUSEUM


Misguided Little Unforgivable Hierarchies 
Up for one more week, closing on March 9th, Wangechi Mutu’s A Fantastic Journey is a show you must see before it comes down. By far one of my favorites of the year, the show is the artist’s first survey in the United States. Wangechi’s first-ever animated video The End of eating Everything includes the musician and performing artist Santigold as an over indulgent, insatiable, slow-moving, pollution emitting being devouring everything that comes in her path. Watch in its entirety, it is worth every second of the 8 minutes. Spanning several media, the show also includes Wangechi’s large-scale collages, sketchbook drawings exhibited for the first time, a site-specific wall drawing, and sculptural installations.
