Feminist Art Friday Feature: Wangechi Mutu

Kenyan artist Wangechi Mutu uses her work to explore race, politics, and gender through a variety of mediums such as video, sculpture, and collage. Born in Nairobi, Kenya, Mutu moved to the United States for college in the 1990s. She went on to earn an MFA in sculpture from Yale. Matu now lives and works in Brooklyn, where her work was recently on display in a major exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum. 

According to the Brooklyn Museum:

Mutu scrutinizes globalization by combining found materials, magazine cutouts, sculpture, and painted imagery. Sampling such diverse sources as African traditions, international politics, the fashion industry, pornography, and science fiction, her work explores gender, race, war, colonialism, global consumption, and the exoticization of the black female body. Mutu is best known for spectacular and provocative collages depicting female figures—part human, animal, plant, and machine—in fantastical landscapes that are simultaneously unnerving and alluring, defying easy categorization and identification. Bringing her interconnected ecosystems to life for this exhibition through sculptural installations and videos, Mutu encourages audiences to consider these mythical worlds as places for cultural, psychological, and socio-political exploration and transformation.

I just want to pour my soul out on someone and not have to worry about the mess I’ve made.

We mistake sex for romance. Guys are taught that pushing a girl up against a wall is romance. Sex is easy; you can do it with anyone, yourself, with batteries. Romance is when someone you like walks into a room and they take your breath away. Romance is when two people are dancing and they fit together perfectly. Romance is when two people are walking next to each other and all of a sudden they find themselves holding hands, and they don’t know how that happened.

I am learning every day to allow the space between where I am and where I want to be to inspire me and not terrify me.

Never chase love, affection or attention. If it isn’t given freely by another person, it isn’t worth having.

I’m not even a man but I’m a black woman and I’ve experienced this on the subway, elevators, etc. And I ALWAYS want to do that “boo!” Part.

Oh, so women can’t dress how they want because men can’t control their sexual urges? When dogs can’t control their sexual urges, we cut off their balls.

I think I’m onto something here.

ATTENTION ALL GIRLS AND LADIES: if you walk from home, school, office or anywhere and you are alone and you come across a little boy crying holding a piece of paper with an address on it, DO NOT TAKE HIM THERE! take him straight to the police station for this is the new ‘gang’ way of rape. The incident is getting worse. Warn your families. Reblog this so this message can get accross to everyone. 

I will always reblog things like this, it won’t ruin your blog or the look of it, and this could potentially save a life.
