Final Weeks: 2022 Special Exhibitions Close November 7
Don’t miss your chance to see works by Wangechi Mutu and Brandon Ndife
Mutu’s work engages with the natural world to address themes of women’s rights, human equality, and civil rights, and their inextricable relationships with our ecosystems. This exhibition foregrounds Mutu’s current practice in earth and bronze sculpture and exhibit new works. Using materials straight from the earth of East Africa, Mutu conceptualizes and sculpts forms that suggest new modes of knowledge and understanding for a visionary future.
Outlooks: Brandon Ndife
Set in Storm King’s Maple Rooms, Brandon Ndife presents his first outdoor sculptural project. Working primarily with domestic items, such as furniture and kitchenware the artist makes by hand, Ndife manipulates objects’ appearance by casting them in polyurethane foam and resin, often embedding the household items into the surfaces of the cast sculptures. The effect is one that is organic and sinister, suggesting a process of rot that subsumes the quotidian objects and embalms them in a perpetual state of decay.
