Wangechi Mutu: A Fantastic Journey and Virginia Overton: Flat Rock
Opening Reception: Thursday, April 17, 7-9 pm
On view: April 18 – July 6, 2014
“A Fantastic Journey” by Wangechi Mutu is a comprehensive survey of the Kenya-born, New York -based artist whose multi-faceted work articulates a 21st century global sensibility. The exhibition includes more than 50 works from the mid-1990s to the present.
The Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, presents the work of Virginia Overton in “Flat Rock,” a major large-scale and site- responsive exhibition. Marking the artist’s first solo exhibition at an American museum, “Flat Rock” features both works from the artist’s studio and commissioned sculpture, compiled with objects sourced in the area around the exhibition site to reframe the relationship between work and environment.
