Wangechi Mutu was at the Nasher Museum recently to install her solo exhibition, Wangechi Mutu: A Fantastic Journey (March 21 – July 21, 2013). Over the course of three long days, the artist created a large drawing on the gallery entrance wall. In her work, she often combines found materials and magazine cutouts with sculpture and painted imagery, sampling from sources as diverse as African traditions, international politics, the fashion industry and science fiction. Watch a behind-the-scenes slideshow revealing some of the artist’s materials.

Exhibition Preview Event: Wednesday, March 20, 7 PM. Free and open to all.
