Have you guys heard about the new monument being built for Oklahoma’s Statehouse? The statue is a direct response to the state’s installation of a Ten Commandments monument outside the Capitol in 2012. 

How fucking metal

Wangechi Mutu at the Brooklyn Museum

Now based in Brooklyn, New York, Kenyan artist Wangechi Mutu’s first survey in the United States Wangechi Mutu: A Fantastic Journey, spanning from the mid-1990s to the present and featuring more than fifty pieces including Mutu’s signature large-scale collages, video works, never-before-seen sketchbook drawings, a site-specific wall drawing, and sculptural installations, launched at the Brooklyn Museum in New York last week.

Always critically aware and socially conscious, this multimedia body of work explores the vast inner workings of Mutu’s imagination combined with her unique outlook and personal experiences that intersect spaces between clashing cultures, psychological explorations and dynamics of gender, sexuality, self-expression and political positioning.

Fem Art Friday Feature: Kara Walker

Contemporary artist Kara Walker deals with the complicated issues of race, gender, and sexuality in her art pieces. These themes are often explored through her well-known silhouettes pieces. In her own words…

"I was really searching for a format to sort of encapsulate, to simplify complicated things…And some of it spoke to me as: ‘it’s a medium…historically, it’s a craft…and it’s very middle-class.’ It spoke to me in the same way that the minstrel show does…it’s middle class white people rendering themselves black, making themselves somewhat invisible, or taking on an alternate identity because of the anonymity … and because the shadow also speaks about so much of our psyche. You can play out different roles when you’re rendered black, or halfway invisible.” [Source]

Paul Baribeau - I Thought I Could Find You

you are made of the softest parts of snow
and the quiet sound of rain
and the warm stuff that melts the ice cube
and the force that moves the waves
