    About The Work

    A wrap-around print of Mutu's Yo Mama: a piece dedicated to the mother of Fela Kuti as both social commentary and expression of the divine. A rich color palate combined with exquisite collage makes for a truly functional art accessory. Acclaimed artist Wangechi Mutu (b. 1972 Nairobi, Kenya) works across painting, collage, drawing, sculpture, and film, developing hybrid, fantastical forms that fuse mythical and folkloric narratives with layered sociohistorical references. Mutu's practice consistently challenges the ways in which cultures and histories have traditionally been classified and proffers new models for a radically changed future informed by feminism, Afrofuturism, and interspecies symbiosis.

    Yo Mama, 2003, Ink, mica flakes, acrylic, pressure-sensitive film, cut-and-pasted printed paper, and painted paper on paper, diptych: 59 1/8 × 85 in (150.2 × 215.9 cm) overall. The Museum of Modern Art, New York. The Judith Rothschild Foundation Contempory
