Kenyan-born Wangechi Mutu is the visual artist equivalent to the brilliant Nigerian novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Drawing from their shared limbo-land experience of African-American vs American-African, both women investigate urgent questions of race, identity politics, and the objectification of the black female body. Mostly known for her large-scale, complex and colorful collages, Wangechi Mutu’s current exhibition at Gladstone Gallery offers two beautiful new cast bronze sculptures that use imagery and symbolism to challenge concept of representation and perception. A perfectly balanced and larger-scaled new work of the artist’s nguva (Mermaid) series, stuns with grace and elegant beauty. Through March 25.
