What You Need to Know: Montague Contemporary has partnered with NYC Culture Club to present “We Contain Multitudes,” on view through January 15 at NYC Culture Club in the Oculus at the World Trade Center. The show features the work of seven women artists of color: Jessica Atieno, Prudence Chimutuwah, Angèle Etoundi Essamba, Muna Malik, Zina Saro-Wiwa, Florence Wangui, and Beatrice Wanjiku. Presenting mediums ranging from textiles to photography to painting by both early- and mid-career artists, the exhibition is a testament to the vision and range of these creators in an industry largely dominated by men. The show is organized by Laura Day Webb, an independent curator and art consultant whose curatorial practice focuses on under-recognized contemporary art and artists—with an emphasis on women and African artists—operating outside the traditional Western canon.
