About

Wangechi Mutu is one of the most exciting and inventive contemporary artists working today. Join us for a riveting and candid conversation charting the artist's career to date via her varied sources of inspiration, rarely-seen sketchbooks and insights into new directions in her practice, including her current exploration of the possibilities of printmaking, mythology and more. The Kenyan-born, New York based artist, known for her complex paintings and collages of the female body, has developed a distinctive practice spanning drawing, video, sculpture and installation. Straddling tradition and taboo, Mutu's work challenges the uneasy interplay of the ethnographic and erotic in visual culture. The artist will be in conversation with Curator of International Art, Zoe Whitley, in advance of Mutu's exhibition Nguva na Nyoka (Sirens and Serpents) at Victoria Miro, on view from 14 October 2014.
