Blanton Museum of Art presents Wangechi Mutu: The End of Eating Everything opening day
Wangechi Mutu’s animated video The End of Eating Everything features the singer Santigold as a post-apocalyptic being hovering in a darkened sky. Her bulbous, tumor-like body, covered in human limbs and machine parts, throbs and emits plumes of smoke as she greedily devours a flock of birds. Mutu’s monstrous creation suggests the destructive - and ultimately self-imposed - nature of our drive to consume.
This video is shown in conjunction with the exhibition "Making Africa: A Continent of Contemporary Design," on view in the Butler Gallery from October 14, 2018 through January 6, 2019.
Following opening day, the exhibit will be on display through November 25.
