QF – Quattlebaum Foretich - Gallery is pleased to present Message in a Bottle, curated by Lori Zimmer at SCOPE 2013 in Miami.

Visitors are invited into a maritime ship chandlery, where contemporary artists have created their own message for the ages, inspired by the historic tales of messages found in bottles decades after they were sent thousands of miles away. Over 50 artists have created special-commissioned pieces that pay tribute to the treasures, from sculptural works to drawings and paintings, waiting to be unfurled from within each bottle.

Wangechi Mutu: A Fantastic Journey
Brookyn Museum of Art, Brooklyn, NY
October 11, 2013 to March 9, 2014
Wangechi Mutu: A Fantastic Journey is the first survey in the United States of this internationally renowned, Brooklyn-based artist. Spanning from the mid-1990s to the present, the exhibition unites more than fifty pieces, including Wangechi Mutu’s, A '97 signature large-scale collages as well as video works, never-before-seen sketchbook drawings, a site-specific wall drawing, and sculptural installations. Born in Nairobi, Kenya, Mutu scrutinizes globalization by combining found materials, magazine cutouts, sculpture, and painted imagery. Sampling such diverse sources as African traditions, international politics, the fashion industry, pornography, and science fiction, her work explores gender, race, war, colonialism, global consumption, and the exoticization of the black female body. Mutu is best known for spectacular and provocative collages depicting female figures—part human, animal, plant, and machine—in fantastical landscapes that are simultaneously unnerving and alluring, defying easy categorization and identification. Bringing her interconnected ecosystems to life for this exhibition through sculptural installations and videos, Mutu encourages audiences to consider these mythical worlds as places for cultural, psychological, and socio-political exploration and transformation.
