Artist Wangechi Mutu will host a book release and signing party at Motorco for the richly illustrated catalogue published on the occasion of her solo exhibition at the Nasher Museum, Wangechi Mutu: A Fantastic Journey. Join the artist at Motorco for a lively discussion with Grammy Award-winning producer 9th Wonder, critic and musician Greg Tate and Duke professor Mark Anthony Neal.  The conversation will focus on Wangechi’s work in relationship to like-minded musicians, including her recent video collaboration with recording artist Santigold. The talk will be followed by a book signing at 9 PM and a dance party with 9th Wonder, Harrison Haynes (of Les Savy Fav), and DJ Strider. The 176-page catalogue includes many images that highlight the most important and iconic works Mutu has created since the mid-1990s, as well as portraying the installation at the Nasher Museum, including new collages, a monumental wall drawing, videos and selections from the artist’s sketchbooks. The catalogue includes scholarly essays by the exhibition’s curator, Trevor Schoonmaker, art historian Kristine Stiles and Greg Tate, paired with an illustrated chronology of Mutu’s work. Signed catalogues will be available for purchase at Motorco.  Receive a free Nasher Museum tote bag with the purchase of a catalogue and a museum membership.
