Wangechi Mutu: A Fantastic Journey
March 21 – July 21, 2013
Original Traveling Exhibition
Get creative at home with this project inspired by a work of art in the museum’s collection, Malcolm X #5 by Barbara Chase-Riboud. Pioneering sculptor Barbara Chase-Riboud created this 6-foot tall sculpture of polished bronze and silk, in 2003.
For more than 50 years, Chase-Riboud has combined metals with textiles to create imposing works inspired by identity, history and loss. The sculpture is part of an ongoing series, a memorial to the slain civil rights leader Malcolm X.
