The Triptych: Wangechi Mutu




The Triptych is a unique and profound documentary series profiling some of the most outspoken visual artists of our time.  Kenyan artist Wangechi Mutu is one of the 3 artists featured.

Produced by Afro-Punk Pictures, the documentary is itself a work of art, featuring three intimate 20-minute conversations with three bold and culturally resonant voices in art. Each monologue is a reflection of their life experience, letting the viewer discover how their observations have shaped the art they create.


A series of bio-pics with three of the most resonant voices in art: Wangechi Mutu, Barron Claiborne and Sanford Biggers. These films contrasts the art, views and experiences three artists who are contemporaries, luminaries and friends. The films are a perfect platform to explore the intersection between art, music and the Brooklyn experience.


There will be screening of The Triptych at Nasher Museum of Art on May 2nd 2013 at 17:30.

Other features Ciné Kenya has done about Wangechi Mutu’s work include an intimate interview at her home here, her incredible work as the artistic director for a Pegasus Warning music video here and her exhibition A Fantastic Journey here.
