Wangechi Mutu

Wangechi Mutu : Awesome artist! Found on Art21!

“I’m really trying to pay homage to the notion of the sublime and the abject together and using the aesthetic of rejection, or poverty, or wretchedness as a tool to talk about things that are transcendent and hopeful.” (Aimée Reed, “Interview with Wangechi Mutu,” Daily Serving, Apr. 12, 2010)
Wangechi Mutu was born in Kenya and lives and works in New York City. As the inaugural recipient of the Deutsche Bank Prize, Mutu had a large showing of her work up at theDeutsche Guggenheim this past June that included several of her signature strategically scatological collages and assemblages.

WOMA chooses their Charity

The WOMA Committee is pleased to announce its collaboration with the Grenada National Organisation of Women (GNOW) in celebration of International Women’s Day, 2011.
Established in April 1995, GNOW is the umbrella non-governmental organisation (NGO) addressing women’s issues in Grenada, such as women’s empowerment and welfare, gender equality, and involvement in economic, social and political development.

Funds raised from the upcoming exhibition will be donated to Breaking Barriers, a programme created by GNOW to help  female victims of abuse acquire skills that will enable them to join the workforce and become economically viable.

This program is so important, not only because it is education-based but for the opportunities it presents to women who want to become independent of their abusive environment.

Join us in our efforts to support women in need, buy art and support WOMA and GNOW!
