Wangechi Mutu: I Am Speaking, Are You Listening?

"Wangechi Mutu's powerful voice, urging us to reassess colonial legacies and societal power structures, will ring out loud to Bay Area audiences at the Legion of Honor" states Thomas P. Campbell, Director and CEO of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco "This important new installation in the Fine Arts Museums' contemporary art program will remind us of the potential of art to challenge outdated narratives and uncover underlying truths."
