ARCHIVE: Wangechi Mutu / Art in America / June 2007

Wangechi Mutu, Yo Mama, 2003, mixed mediums on two sheets of paper, 59 by 85 inches overall.
Museum of Modern Art, New York.
In June 2007, the cover of Art in America magazine was preternatural in pink thanks to Wangechi Mutu's mixed media composition Yo Mama. The work was used to promote the feature "Worldwide Women" which examined the Brooklyn Museum exhibit Global Feminisms: New Directions in Contemporary Art. The article by Eleanor Heartney described the show as "[exploring] the range of artworks being made internationally by women born since 1960 -- and the variety of experiences they reflect."
