Wangechi Mutu’s animated video "The End of eating Everything" features the singer Santigold as a post-apocalyptic being hovering in a darkened sky. Her bulbous, tumor-like body, covered in human limbs and machine parts, throbs and emits plumes of smoke as she greedily devours a flock of birds. Mutu’s monstrous creation suggests the destructive—and ultimately self-imposed—nature of our drive to consume.

This video is shown in conjunction with the exhibition "Making Africa: A Continent of Contemporary Design", on view in our Butler Gallery from October 14, 2018 through January 06, 2019.

Organized by Claire Howard, Assistant Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Blanton Museum of Art
