Some ways to celebrate talented, brave women throughout NYC for women's history month and all year long.


Wangechi Mutu: Intertwined

New Museum
Closes Jun 4

Look for hybrid, fantastical forms that fuse mythical and folkloric narratives with layered sociohistorical references  – crocodile women, mermaids and more – among over one hundred works from across Nairobi artist Wangechi Mutu’s twenty-five-year career.

Find the stories in collage-based works exploring camouflage, transformation, and mutation, plus paintings, drawings, sculptures, film, and performances.  Follow her decades-long exploration of the legacies of colonialism, globalization, and African and diasporic cultural traditions. At once culturally specific and transnational in scope, Mutu’s work grapples with contemporary realities, while proffering new models for a radically changed future informed by feminism, Afrofuturism, and interspecies symbiosis.

Poster Kids: East Meets West

This month, Poster Kids will focus on the museum’s latest exhibition Made in Japan: 20th-Century Poster Art. Learn to identify popular motifs in both traditional Japanese and modern Western design. Then create artwork using themes from both aesthetics.
