Starlit Screenings: Films by Wangechi Mutu
8:00pm — 10:00pm
Journey under the stars at Storm King during a special evening of films by 2022 exhibition artist, Wangechi Mutu. Bringing together films Mutu has created over two decades, the multi-screen outdoor film ramble will feature her newest film, My Cave Call, in which the artist embodies and transforms into a mythical figure in Suswa Caves, within Kenya’s Rift Valley. Integral to her sculpture and collage work, Mutu’s genre-defying films range from conceptual performances to mythological realms. The starlit event invites a closer look at the artist’s richly varied practice, which engages with the natural world to address themes of women’s rights and representation, human equality, and civil rights, and their inextricable relationships with our ecosystems.
Support our local vendors! Beer and wine will be available through Fresh Company and delicious food can be enjoyed from The Farmhouse Market. Merchandise will also be available to purchase at a special Museum Store Popup.
Please note: Storm King will close to the public at 5:30PM and re-open at 7PM for event attendees
