Wangechi Mutu, This You Call Civilization? at the AGO

May 9, 2010

She is one of my favourite contemporary artists. And her showing at the AGO is up on May 23rd. Be sure to check it out.

Wangechi Mutu’s work boldly explores the contradictions of female and cultural identity, drawing the viewer into conversations about beauty, consumerism, colonialism, race, and gender. Her representations of the human form are disturbing and transfixing, at once utterly complex and strikingly direct.
