Wangechi Mutu

Wangechi Mutu

Originally from Kenya, Wangechi Mutu moved to the United States to study anthropology and art. Her multimedia works use dreamlike and provocative imagery to explore issues of gender and sexism, race, (neo)colonialism, and rampant consumption. The unique mix of elements in her collages, videos, animations, sculptures, and installations, which often feature a sci-fi twist, places her among the vanguard of Afrofuturism in visual art. 

This lecture series, now in its 20th year, was named in memory of Tyrone Maurice Adderley, a talented and popular painting student. The series brings artists, writers, scholars, and activists from underrepresented groups to share their work and wisdom with MassArt and the community.
