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.
The Nasher Museum is fully open to the public with ongoing health and safety protocols and free admission for all, including Thursday nights and weekends. We strongly encourage all individuals to be fully vaccinated before visiting the Nasher.
